As a Disability Analyst

Throughout your 20-week training and beyond, you will receive coaching, mentoring and day-to-day support from your colleagues. The comprehensive induction programme will start to teach you to complete assessments and write reports on behalf of the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP). Support is on-going and will allow you to become a proficient and qualified Health & Disability Analyst, an additional qualification attained after accreditation.

Due to the broad range of conditions and disabilities you will encounter, each day will be different and varied. There are clear prospects for career advancement and professional development with your existing clinical knowledge being enhanced through the varied nature of the role. You will be conducting assessments through a combination of home consultation visits and assessment centre-based appointments. You will use your existing and newly acquired skills to determine how a person's health condition or disability is impacting their daily life, whilst recognising that individuals may be affected in different ways.

During the assessment, it will be your job to take detailed notes and to type a detailed, objective report for the DWP, who then decide on each person's PIP claim.

While the role is autonomous, you will have the excellent benefit of being able to share knowledge with a team made up of physiotherapists, occupational therapists, paramedics and nurses from the fields of mental health, general nursing and learning disabilities. To be considered for this opportunity, full registration with the NMC / HCPC, plus a minimum of 2 years post-registration experience within a range of clinical settings is required. A full driving license is also essential as community visits often require driving between homes.
