If so, we invite you to learn more about opportunities with our I CAN team. A key distinguishing feature of I CAN, and a source of enormous strength, is our commitment to ensuring that at least 50% of our team is Autistic. We feel very strongly about providing a workplace that celebrates and nurtures Autistic talent and also attracts non Autistic team members who relish the opportunity to work for an Autistic-led organisation.
The fact that we are a neurodiverse, Autistic-centered organisation influences every aspect of our work culture. We aim to support all team members in roles that capitalise on individual strengths, respect personal schedules and capacity to provide meaningful growth opportunities over time.
What is it like to work for the I CAN Network?
What roles can I apply for? Whilst most of our opportunities are for mentoring positions (entry level through management), our I CAN Network team includes a diverse range of roles. If you would like to be the first to learn about upcoming opportunities with I CAN, including and beyond mentoring roles, please email us at [email protected] and tell us about your interests and skills.
Can I apply for a position if I already work part time? Absolutely. If you have a day or more free each week, we would love to hear from you!
How can I find out more information about the jobs listed? Attached to each of the job opportunities you will see a job description. Download the job description for more information regarding the opportunity.
What is the time commitment involved in being a mentor? The commitment of school-based mentors involves a fixed number of hours per mentoring session and availability during school hours. The commitment of online group mentors also involves a fixed number of hours per mentoring session and availability on certain weekday evenings. We provide training and ongoing professional development for all team members.
Can I apply for a position if I’m not yet 18? We do accept applications from people under the age of 18 for some roles. Please download the job description attached to the relevant job opportunity for more details.
Can I apply for more than one job posting at a time?
Yes, you can. Just ensure you apply for each role separately and include the job title in the subject line of each application, along with a current resume and cover letter.
Do I need a drivers licence to apply? Many of the locations in which we work are accessible by public transport so a drivers license is not a mandatory requirement.
How do I contact I CAN if I have a another question?
Send an email to [email protected] and we’ll be happy to answer any questions you might have.
I often say that I have the best job in the world, with an incredible team who are so dedicated to creating a world that embraces Autism. We are excited to welcome some new members!
