Job Summary:
Do good. Be great as a doctor.
Are you a doctor who wants to continue helping people but needs a better work-life balance? Join our Assessments Division and thrive as you use your clinical skills in a different way and help people move forward with their lives.
About the role
Day-to-day, you'll carry out telephone, video or face-to-face assessments to understand how a person's disability or health condition affects their daily life. You'll listen to their experiences, ask questions and use your insights to produce a factual report to help the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) determine their eligibility for benefits. It's important work that has a big impact on real lives, so we'll make sure you get the time you need with each customer to undertake a quality and respectful service.
Every assessment is different. You might work on complex cases involving veterans or customers with neurological conditions, industrial injuries and respiratory diseases. It'll be challenging at times, but we'll support you to manage your caseloads efficiently to deliver the best service. Our colleagues combine the highest levels of integrity with extensive clinical knowledge to offer the best service possible to our customers.

Flexible working arrangements: you won't be expected to work long days, do night shifts or take work home. Instead, you can work full time, part time or hybrid in a pattern that gives you genuine work life balance
