Job Title: Welsh Speaking Disability Assessor

Contract: Permanent

Hours: Full time - 37.5 hrs per week Monday to Saturday

Part time - minimum 22.5 hrs per week (3 full days), however you would be required to train for 5 weeks full time

The role

As a Disability Assessor you will undertake a face to face assessment of an individual who is making a claim for the Personal Independence Payment in either the claimant's home or one of our clinics. You may also be required to complete paper based assessments that do not require you to meet with claimants face to face.

You will need to take into account all of the information presented including any supporting evidence (e.g. the claimant's completed questionnaire, and information from GP's or Specialists etc) and then carry out a face to face consultation in a professional manner.

Once you have gathered all the necessary information you will complete a structured report to be presented to the DWP.

This report will contain a detailed history of the claimant condition(s) including information gathered on the functional impact of their health condition or impairment on their daily living and mobility, their current medication and treatment. You will use this to make recommendations on the assessment criteria which should be applied.

You will provide a full justification explaining how you came to these conclusions from the evidence gathered and define the probable timescales over which a health condition or impairment may affect the claimant. Therefore you will also give your recommendation of when it would be medically sensible to review the claimant's circumstances again.

Who we're looking for

This is really important...
You must have at least one year post-registration experience as an Occupational Therapist (OT), Physiotherapist, Nurse, Paramedic or with a licence to practice and must be registered with the NMC / HCPC with a valid PIN.

You must be a fluent welsh speaker.

You should also have the ability to work autonomously across a geographical area and hold a full UK Driving Licence.


Happy working as part of a team or on your own initiative, you'll have sufficient clinical knowledge to read and understand complex claimant information and have excellent report writing skills to enable you to provide DWP with a robust assessment report.

You'll have appropriate questioning skills along with the ability to capture informal and formal observations and will be confident using computers.


When you work for the best, you can expect the best:

  • Salary of £34,000 per annum
  • 23 days paid holidays (plus 8 statutory holidays)
  • Travel expenses reimbursed
  • Life Assurance
  • Company pension
  • Career development opportunities
  • Working for a progressive and cutting-edge employer with exceptional standards
