Their mission is to help customers move forward with their lives by providing a quality, sensitive and respectful service. Working in partnership with the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP), since March 2015, the client supports the Government to provide certain benefits for people who are out of work due to long-term illness or as a result of a disability or health condition. This partnership ensures that the Government’s approach to assessing eligibility, through an independent health assessment under the Health Assessment Advisory Service, is fully achieved.

You will conduct independent one-to-one assessment with referred individuals and delivers the subsequent report to the DWP. In doing so the DWP remains responsible for the final determination in relation to the individual’s benefit entitlement.

The client need individuals who know how to make people feel comfortable, who understand that there is an art of establishing genuine trust with people in a busy environment, who is an attentive listener and always respectful of others.
