Support when you need it
Kassee knows first-hand how rewarding it can be to be a disability assessor. Discover how the role offers a great work-life balance, the kind of challenges she faces day-to-day, how she’s supported to learn and grow — and why she’s a much happier person in general.
A bit about you
You’ll need to be a fully qualified healthcare professional — a nurse, occupational therapist, paramedic or physiotherapist — with a minimum of two years’ post-qualification experience (and full registration with HCPC or NMC). You’ll use this experience to be able to clinically assess applicants and compile reports about how their health condition and/or disability affects their daily lives and mobility. It’s not all about expertise though — you’ll also need an eye for detail, sharp decision-making skills, compassion, and understanding. You’ll be good with computers and able to write up succinct, accurate reports.
With us, you'll be:
- Using your clinical expertise to interview PIP applicants in person.
- Asking the right questions to understand an applicant’s condition(s).
- Building a picture of how their condition(s) impact(s) their day-to-day life.
- Managing your time to write up detailed assessment reports after your appointment.
Where you could be based
We’re currently looking for disability assessors to join our teams in Derby, Leicester, Llandudno (Wales) and Nottingham. The role is field-based, as you visit applicants in their own home.
