As a nurse are you looking to change lives for the better, including your own? At Maximus, we believe you can have a great worklife balance and continue to help others too.
We employ 3,800 staff, including over 1,400 doctors, nurses, physiotherapists and other healthcare professionals. Operating from more than 270 locations across England, Scotland and Wales, as well as having a global presence, Maximus is one of the largest providers of employment, health and disability support programmes in the country. Our businesses include the Centre for Health and Disability Assessments (CHDA) along with Remploy and Health Management.
We’re looking for a NMC Registered Nurse with broad-based post-registration experience, who wants to do impactful work as part of a team, to help people move forward with their lives.
We offer an annual salary of £43,000 plus an attractive benefits package.
You’ll carry out assessments to understand how a person's disability or health condition affects their daily life. After each assessment, you’ll produce a factual report enabling the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) decision maker to determine a customer’s eligibility for benefits.
We know that having the right people does make the difference to our customers’ lives. That’s why we go to great lengths to ensure our colleagues feel valued and rewarded for the work they do as well as support their worklife balance.
As a nurse within our CHDA business, you’ll undertake a combination of file-work and face-to-face assessments in relation to a variety of benefits. These assessments will focus on how a health condition or disability affects a person’s day-to-day life. You’ll then utilise various IT platforms to support you in the clinical decision-making and produce a written report for the DWP.
Our Nurses play a pivotal role in supporting our customers to move forward with their lives, so we’ll support you through a formal training programme to enable you to carry out quality, sensitive and respectful functional assessments.
You’ll be comfortable working to targets, open to feedback and have good IT skills, including the ability to type at a reasonable pace along with having excellent communication skills, both oral and written, as well as being confident in working with a wide range of p and the ability to handle challenging situations. We’re looking for nurses who are keen to learn and take a proactive approach to this.
You’ll need to demonstrate your NMC registration and continuous professional development in line with their requirements. Previous experience of functional or disability assessment is desirable but not essential.
Due to COVID 19 all our Nurses are currently undertaking telephone assessments until we can resume face-to-face assessments.
