Are you a highly motivated Nurse, Physiotherapist, Occupational Therapist or Paramedic looking for a rewarding new challenge and a chance to progress your career?

If so, Independent Assessment Services has an excellent opportunity for you to develop your existing skills and qualify as a Disability Assessor. You'll be rewarded with a fantastic benefits package, with no weekend work required.

The role

Your primary role will be to source clinical data from external health professionals, such as GPs, specialist nurses and consultants.

You'll also be asked to liaise with end of life services to prepare terminal illness cases to support claimants in the PIP process, swiftly and compassionately.

On a daily basis you will be responsible for ensuring claimants are supported through the process by using your clinical skills and expertise.

This is an office based role and no two days will ever be the same. Given the wide range of conditions and disabilities you will be analysing, each day will contribute to your expanding clinical knowledge.

You'll receive comprehensive training and have the ongoing support from a range of health professionals.
