Jerrel was helped by our Autism at Work programme to find employment as a data business analyst at HM Revenue and Customs. The programme provided a job coach who supported Jerrel with his application and helped him prepare him for the interview and the role. The job coach also worked with Jerrel's employers to support them to be autism-friendly and make the simple adjustments that have helped Jerrel thrive at work.
Since joining the programme, I would say that my confidence has definitely improved a lot. I feel like I am working in an environment of people who respect me and are willing to do what they can to ensure I feel comfortable around them.
