Do good. Be great as a doctor.
Are you a doctor who wants to continue helping people but needs a better work life balance? At Maximus, you don’t need to compromise. Join our Centre for Health and Disability Assessments (CHDA) business, as a Doctor Functional Assessor and use your clinical skills in a different way to help people move forward with their lives.
Our healthcare colleagues are the driving force of our business. That’s why, as part of our team, you won’t be expected to work long days, do night shifts or take work home. Instead, you can work either full-time or part-time hours in a pattern that gives you genuine work life balance – plus the flexibility to make long-term decisions about your future career.
You’ll benefit from our newly implemented hybrid working scheme, where you’ll have the flexibility and support to work in the office and at home. On top of that, you can expect a wide range of benefits designed to help you achieve great things:
What you’ll be doing as a doctor
Day-to-day, you’ll carry out assessments to understand how a person's disability or health condition affects their daily life. You’ll listen sensitively 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, and 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.
What we look for in doctors
From working with a diverse range of customers to handling challenging situations, this role is a fantastic opportunity to develop your clinical knowledge and hone your assessment skills, while helping people move forward with their lives.
Due to COVID 19 most of our doctors are currently undertaking telephone assessments until we can resume face-to-face assessments.
