The Role

Our client is currently looking for occupational therapists, physiotherapists, paramedics and registered nurses to join our team.

To become a PIP assessor there is a comprehensive 4 stage training process which involves e-learning. Following this, there will be a 10 day face to face training course with assessments throughout. Assessments will then be observed by a mentor and you will receive continued support until satisfactory grades are achieved.

You will be expected to work productively, ensuring that quality is maintained and also respond positively to feedback. You will be expected to complete assessments and write succinct, accurate and comprehensive reports in plain English to enable the decision making process.
