Our ADHD consultancy service



At Exceptional Individuals, we know that even with the best will in the world, it can be difficult to be a truly inclusive employer. That is why we support employers through our ADHD consultancy services, offering advice and guidance on drafting and implementing inclusive policies, HR guides, and creating a culture of open communication.

People with ADHD have unique skills that make them an asset to organisations, we support employers to ensure they are providing an inclusive environment for their employees to thrive and their organisation to grow.

We can get you started by supporting you to become more "ADHD friendly", and provide bespoke consultancy services such as audits and training. Our specialist services help to ensure that being inclusive is not treated as a one-time engagement, but a progressive attempt at genuinely improving the inclusivity of your workplace.

How might ADHD affect work?


People with ADHD may be restless, disorganised and have difficulty concentrating on one task at a time. For this reason, it can be difficult for people with ADHD to perform well in traditional job interviews or with long term unstructured projects.

However, each person with ADHD has their own unique talents which can include creativity, "hyperfocus", enthusiasm, innovation, and the ability to build in-depth knowledge on any topic of interest.

At Exceptional Individuals, we work with employers and candidates with ADHD to match the right people to the right roles and organisations. We have a database of candidates with ADHD who have uploaded their CV and interest in securing a job. We then help to create a match with employers from well-known companies by inviting our candidates to apply to jobs which suit their skill set.

If the candidate is successful in securing a job with one of our partner organisations, Exceptional Individuals provides support for employee needs through coaching sessions and by advising on the necessary tools to utilise their unique skills. We will also advise employers on any suitable provision they can put in place to support their employee to succeed in their new role.


What is the best job for someone with ADHD?


When undertaking work that capitalises on strengths and reasonable adjustments are implemented, individuals with ADHD are capable of succeeding and can provide exceptional value to organisations.

There isn’t a one size fits all career for every person with ADHD. It depends on the individual’s interests and talents. Though there are careers that utilise the assets of having ADHD, such as creativity, and innovation more than others. These jobs include teaching, designing, creative arts and entrepreneurship, amongst many others.


How do people with ADHD think?


People with ADHD may feel like they have always “felt different” and stood out from their peer group, especially at school and work.

Common traits of ADHD such as being easily distracted, intense, creative, and energetic can lead to individuals being misunderstood in a mainstream environment. However, it is important to emphasise that neurotypical and neurodivergent people have different ways of responding to stimuli and certain situations.

Although one of the strengths of ADHD is the ability to be hyper-focused, that strength may be limited to subjects/activities of interest. Similarly, people with ADHD may "over focus" and become intensely preoccupied with work and overwork at the expense of other aspects of their lives. However, with the right support and work environment, people with ADHD can harness their strengths and create meaningful careers.
