PIP Health & Disability Analyst – Opportunity for RGNs, RMNs, RNLDs, Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists and Paramedics in Hull
Starting Salary: £32,000 + benefits + overtime opportunities
Flexible Contracts Available: Full Time, Part Time, Weekend & Term time
Are you a driven Nurse, Physiotherapist, OT or Paramedic who is seeking a new challenge and looking to improve your work-life balance?
Do you want to use your clinical knowledge, skills and clinical decision making abilities in a non-clinical environment?
If you have answered “yes" to these questions, then an excellent and unrivalled opportunity awaits you in Independent Assessment Services, working as a Health & Disability Analyst.
The support you will receive during and after your training, is second to none. The comprehensive induction programme will allow you to complete assessments and write reports on behalf of the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP). Support is on-going and will allow you to become a proficient and qualified Health & Disability Analyst.
Due to the broad range of conditions and disabilities you will encounter, each day will be different and varied. Your existing clinical knowledge will develop in a way no other healthcare role allows. This is a flexible role that required health professionals to carry out consultations at claimant's homes with occasional work at a local assessment centre. You will use your existing and newly acquired skills to determine how a condition/disability is impacting on a person’s ability to perform activities of daily living, whilst also recognising that individuals are affected in different ways.
Following the assessment and after completing either a physical and/or mental state examination, you will write a detailed, impartial report for the DWP, who make the decisions regarding the benefit entitlement.
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. Your Excellent Benefits Package:

Excellent work-life balance - Monday to Friday with no nights, weekends or bank holidays required
Annually reviewed salary + performance based salary uplifts at 9 months and 18 months’ service + overtime opportunities
Fantastic prospects for promotion and professional growth
NMC / HCPC fee reimbursement and revalidation support
25 days of annual leave (increasing over length of service) + option to buy additional days or sell back
Private medical insurance, life assurance, income protection insurance, pension scheme and professional indemnity cover

This is an excellent opportunity for nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and paramedics to work within an established organisation.
