Experience a rewarding clinical career.
Annual salary: £39,500 - £46,300 depending on location and working pattern
Opportunities: full-time, part-time, hybrid and school-time-hours roles
Are you an occupational therapist who wants to continue helping people but needs a better work life balance?
At Maximus, you don’t need to compromise. Join our Assessments Division as a Functional Assessor and use your clinical skills in a different 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, meaning you’ll have the opportunity to use and develop experience across a range of client groups. We’ll make sure you get the time you need with each customer to undertake a quality and respectful assessment, and help to influence change and improvement.
- A HCPC registered Occupational Therapist with 1 years’ 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
- Someone who demonstrates empathy, using excellent interpersonal skills to put customers at ease and gather relevant clinical and functional information in a timely manner
- 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 OT to develop their clinical knowledge and hone their assessment skills further, all while helping people move forward with their lives.
We offer one of the highest paying jobs for occupational therapists, with most salaries ranging between £39,500 - £46,300 depending on location and working pattern. We also provide ample opportunities to increase your income, including paid overtime and incentives, an annual bonus scheme, a referral bonus scheme and a range of company-wide benefits and perks that promote financial wellbeing.
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.
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 OTs go on to become Clinical Standards Leads, Quality Assurance Leads or support our Clinical Standards Team in maintaining clinical excellence. There are also a range of non-clinical opportunities for occupational therapists looking to take on managerial or operational business responsibilities.
