Introduction:

Ready to make a difference?


As a doctor 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.


Job Summary:

We’re looking for a GMC Registered Doctor 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 £72,000 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. You may also find yourself working on more complex cases including customers with neurological conditions, Industrial Injuries, Respiratory Diseases and veterans.


We know that having the right people makes a big 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.

Essential Job Duties:

As a Doctor 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.

  • Undertake a combination of file-work and face-to-face assessments in relation to a variety of benefits.
  • Use IT software programmes to support clinical decision making when undertaking file-work and face-to-face assessments.
  • Provide comprehensive reports to enable decision makers at DWP to make informed decisions regarding benefit claims.
  • Ensure that professional practice standards and best practice are maintained in all areas of work.
  • Analyse and interpret clinical information and medical evidence and provide a professional and concise report.
  • Apply professional skills and manage own professional competence and accountability, in accordance with the GMC Code of Conduct.
  • Work unsupervised and use your own initiative; understanding own limitations and requesting support when necessary or required.
Education and Experience Requirements:

Our Doctors 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.

We’re looking for a GMC Registered Doctor with broad-based post-registration experience. You will be comfortable working to targets, open to feedback and have good IT skills along with excellent communication skills, both oral and written, as well as being confident in working with a wide range of customers and the ability to handle challenging situations. We are looking for Doctors who are keen to learn and take a proactive approach.

You should demonstrate your GMC 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 Doctors are currently undertaking telephone assessments until we can resume face-to-face assessments.

CHDA Statement: Maximus is committed to developing, maintaining and supporting a culture of equality and diversity in which our employees as well as candidates for employment are treated equitably. We understand that a diverse workforce adds to our competitive advantage; and as such, we aim to ensure that job applicants do not receive less favourable treatment on the grounds of sex, race, marital status, disability, age, part-time or fixed term contract status, sexual orientation or religion, or are disadvantaged by conditions or requirements that cannot be shown to be justifiable. Advertisements for posts will include sufficiently clear and accurate information to enable potential applicants to assess their own suitability for the post. Where reasonable, we will review and consider adjustments for those applicants who express a requirement for them during the recruitment process.
