Are you a driven healthcare professional who is looking for a new challenge?

Do you want to use your clinical knowledge, skills and clinical decision making abilities in a non-clinical environment?

Are you looking to improve your work/life balance?



If you have answered yes to these questions, then an excellent and unrivalled opportunity awaits you in Independent Assessment Services, working as a Disability Analyst.


The support you will receive during and after your training, is second to none. The training course which involves both home study and trainer led sessions will allow you to complete assessments and write reports on behalf of the Department for Works and Pensions. Support is on-going and will allow you to become a proficient and qualified Disability Analyst.


Due to the broad range of conditions and disabilities you will encounter, each day will be different and varied, which will enhance and develop your existing clinical knowledge in a way no other healthcare role allows. Dependent on the needs of the individual, the assessments will either take place in a centre or in the individual’s home.

You will be conducting individualised assessments, using your existing and newly acquired skills to determine how a condition/disability is impacting on their ability to perform activities of daily living whilst also recognising that individuals are affected in different ways and no two people are the same. The primary focus being on how they are affected in their daily life rather than the condition itself.

Following the assessment and after completing either a physical and/or mental state examination, you will then write a detailed, impartial report for the Department for Work and Pensions, who make the decisions regarding the entitlement to the benefit.


While the role is autonomous, you will have the excellent benefit of being able to share knowledge with a team which will comprise of physiotherapists, occupational therapists, Paramedics and nurses from the fields of mental health, general and learning disabilities.

The role of a Disability Analyst, is an autonomous one and one which is recognised by the NMC and HCPC, and your revalidation needs will be met completely by Independent Assessment Services.
