At Meridian Health we are currently looking to recruit a registered health professional to work with our client, a leading provider of functional assessment services.

As an assessor, you will be working alongside a dedicated team of health professionals from a number of disciplines to help assess people who are making a claim for Personal Independence Payments.

As this is a mobile role, you will be provided with a vehicle and will be expected to work in a number of locations across Essex. All assessments will be carried out on company premises, and there will not be any requirement to assess people in their homes.

  • A qualified Nurse (RGN/RMN), physiotherapist, occupational therapist or paramedic.
  • Broad-based post-qualification experience.
  • Up to date NMC (nurses) or HCPC (allied health professionals) registration.
  • A full UK driving license.
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills.
  • An ability to act decisively, and work both independently and as part of a team.
  • Excellent written skills with an ability to communicate information in a concise and easy-to-understand manner.
  • We would particularly welcome applications from experienced PIP or ESA assessors.

In return, you will benefit from:

  • A starting salary of £32,000 - £36,000 p/a depending on experience.
  • A company car.
  • Monday to Friday, office-type hours.
  • CPD funding for external courses.
  • Ongoing training and support.
