We’re looking for registered medical doctors to join our team. Whether you’re looking for a full-time job, a part-time opportunity or simply seeking an alternative career, we have a number of jobs for doctors all across the country.
Join our team as a Functional Assessor and explore a new career path, further your development and use your clinical skills in a rewarding new way to help people move forward with their lives.
About the role.
You’ll carry out functional health 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 clinical insights to produce a factual report to help the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) determine a person’s eligibility for benefits.
Every assessment is different – you might work on complex cases involving veterans, or cases involving neurological conditions, industrial injuries and respiratory diseases. We’ll make sure you get the time you need with each customer to undertake a quality and respectful assessment.
- A GMC registered doctor with 1 year’s broad post-registration experience in the UK
- A proactive and keen learner with excellent oral and written communication skills
- Someone who is comfortable working towards individual and team targets
- An expert clinician comfortable working with a diverse range of conditions, including complex cases and mental health conditions
This role is a great opportunity for registered doctors to develop their clinical knowledge and hone their assessment skills further, all while helping people move forward with their lives.

Continuing medical education
We provided protected time for CPD and clinical development, which counts towards your revalidation. We also host an annual Clinical Conference to broaden your clinical knowledge, and offer our doctors the chance to study a Diploma in Occupational Medicine.
We have a dedicated team that will support you through the revalidation process, and ensure you meet your revalidation requirements through ongoing CPD. We'll also reimburse your revalidation fees.
Our assessments are underpinned by clinical expertise, and many of our doctors go on to become Clinical Standards Leads, Quality Assurance Leads or support our Clinical Standards Team in maintaining clinical excellence.
