Job Description

Are you a Doctor who wants to continue helping people but needs a better work/life balance? At Maximus, you don’t need to compromise. Join our Centre for Health and Disability Assessments (CHDA) business as a Functional Assessor – a trusted health provider role – and work as part of a diverse team of registered doctors, medical practitioners and healthcare professionals to help people move forward with their lives.

 

Main duties of the job

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.

Every assessment is different, and you might work on complex cases involving veterans or customers with neurological conditions, industrial injuries and respiratory diseases.

You’ll need to be a GMC registered doctor with broad post-registration experience.

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