Job Description

Are you an experienced caregiver? We're looking for Nurses, Physiotherapists or Occupational Therapists who are seeking a brand-new challenge that offers a great work-life balance with countless career progression opportunities.

As a Disability Assessor, you will be responsible for carrying out full, holistic, face-to-face assessments with individuals who have a varied range of physical and/or mental health disabilities and are seeking to receive a benefit scheme, for example ESA (Employment Support Allowance). You will interpret medical evidence and gather your findings on the conditions presented into a comprehensive report, to support the decision-making process by the Department for Communities (DFC), as well as providing support for the DFC directly at their headquarters.

This Disability Assessor role is ideal if you are passionate about delivering high-quality care, yet ready to advance your career by using your clinical expertise in a new way, within a supportive team environment.

Job Responsibilities as a Disability Assessor:

  • Completing a combination of face-to-face medical assessments based on medical evidence, documentation and supporting existing health professionals with advice on cases they are reviewing
  • Working with people who have a diverse range of health conditions, including physical, sensory, mental health and cognitive issues
  • Working within an office style environment and carrying out consultations at claimants' homes where needed

You do not need experience as a Disability Assessor previously, as an excellent, in-depth training masterclass is provided.

Comprehensive benefits package as a Disability Assessor:

  • Monday to Friday working hours, no weekends required, no night shifts. Flexible, part-time working opportunities are available after the full-time training is complete (minimum requirement of 22.5 hours per week)
  • 25 days' annual leave, with option to buy and sell up to 10 days, plus all bank holidays off
  • Pension scheme matching up to 10% of your contributions and as standard, you will retain earnings from any existing pensions (such as NHS)
  • Life assurance, private medical insurance, and medical indemnity insurance
  • Continuous CPD support provided, plus reimbursement of your annual HCPC/NMC registration fee
  • Flexible benefits, including dental and travel insurance
  • And many more!

Part of your role as a Disability Assessor will be to use your clinical experience by looking into various different activities of daily living and doing a physical assessment if necessary, to understand the severity of their conditions and what their limitations are.

Requirements for this role as a Disability Assessor:

  • RGN, RMN, RLD, Physiotherapist or Occupational Therapist
  • 2 years post reg clinical experience (or 18 months broad-based) minimum
  • Full registration with NMC/HCPC with no restrictions on pin
