Prior to joining Autism CRC, Brendan worked in B2B recruitment software, and in the utility and state government sectors, utilising skills that include Agile/Scrum, Human Centered design, Build-Measure-Learn, Jobs-to-be-Done and ITIL methodologies.

Brendan is directing MyWay Employability – an evidence-based self-determination product. Currently in the development phase, he’s testing concepts with potential users, whilst forming a future roadmap based on feedback, the market landscape and opportunities in the neurodiverse employment space.  

“I’ve always wanted to move into the NFP sector – I joined Autism CRC as they recognise the shift towards digital technology, the opportunities it presents and its’ potential to really empower Autistic people and the community. It’s great to be in a supporting, inclusive environment that makes it so easy to collaborate”
