Job Description

What you’ll be doing

Day-to-day, you’ll carry out assessments to understand how a person's disability or health condition affects their daily life. You’ll listen sensitively to their experiences, ask questions and use your insights to produce a factual report to help the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) determine their eligibility for benefits. It’s important work that has a big impact on real lives, so we’ll make sure you get the time to build a relationship with each customer you speak with.

About the role

Every assessment is different, and you might work on complex cases involving veterans or customers with neurological conditions, industrial injuries and respiratory diseases. It’ll be challenging at times, and it’s a target-focused environment, so we’ll support you to manage your caseloads efficiently in order to deliver the best service. Our colleagues combine the highest levels of integrity with extensive clinical knowledge to offer the best service possible to our customers.

A career without compromises

Our healthcare colleagues are the driving force of our business. That’s why, as part of our team, you won’t be expected to work long days, do night shifts or take work home. Instead, you can work either full-time or part-time in a pattern that gives you genuine work-life balance – plus the flexibility to make long-term decisions about your future career.

Benefits

On top of that, you can expect a wide range of benefits designed to help you achieve great things. That includes a competitive salary of £72,000, a supportive working environment and the opportunity to gain plenty of exposure as you develop your clinical knowledge. You’ll help change lives, without having to compromise your own.

What we look for

You’ll need to be a GMC registered doctor with broad post-registration experience. If you’re proactive, keen to learn and have excellent oral and written communication skills, you’ll make a great addition to the team. From working with a diverse range of customers to handling challenging situations, this role is a fantastic opportunity to develop your clinical knowledge while making a difference to people’s lives.

To do well, you’ll be comfortable working towards targets, open to give and receive feedback and have good IT knowledge. Previous experience of functional or disability assessment is a plus, but not essential – we’ll help you do your best work and complete functional assessments to the highest standards through a formal training programme.

Due to COVID 19 most of our doctors are currently undertaking telephone assessments until we can resume face-to-face assessments.

Who we are

Maximus operates several business lines in the UK, including the Centre for Health and Disability Assessments (CHDA), Remploy, Health Management and Revitalised. Our 3,800 colleagues include over 1,400 doctors, nurses, occupational therapists and other healthcare professionals who play a vital role in improving the lives of millions of people. We have over 270 locations across England, Scotland and Wales and we’re one of the largest providers of employment, health and disability support programmes in the country.
