We were delighted to have Minister Ray Williams visit the Xceptional offices in Sydney on June 14. He spent an hour with our team, hearing about the story of our unique company and meeting some of our software testers.
The Minister took time to see Tim Walton, a Software Tester who appeared on Employable Me, demonstrate some of the puzzles he enjoys playing. These are similar to activities that Xceptional uses in job interviews.
The visit took place at Xceptional’s office which is within the Remarkable accelerator space in the Sydney Startup Hub located in Wynyard.
About 1 in 150 people in Australia live with a form of autism and only around 35% of autistic people are in employment. Xceptional is on a mission to change these statistics, working with banks and other organisations to make them aware of the special skills of autistic people which can positively impact productivity of organisations.
