Sunderland, Tyne And Wear
Are you looking to change lives for the better, including your own?
At Maximus, we believe you can have a great worklife balance and help others move forward with their lives too. Our colleagues’ lives are just as important as our customers, so as a Physiotherapist at Maximus, we’ll do everything to ensure you achieve that perfect balance.
We’re looking for a HCPC Registered Physiotherapist with broad-based post-registration experience who wants to carry out impactful work as part of a team that helps people in need move forward with their lives.
Working as a Physiotherapist within our Centre for Health and Disability Assessments (CHDA) business, you’ll undertake a combination of file-work and assessments (currently by phone until we resume face-to-face assessments) in relation to a variety of benefits. Your assessments will focus on how a disability or a health condition affects a person’s daily life. You’ll then utilise various IT platforms to support you in the clinical decision-making process and produce a written report for the Department for Work and Pensions, who then make a decision on benefit eligibility. You may also find yourself working on more complex neurological cases.
Your working hours would be 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday, so you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy doing the things you love most. We offer a competitive salary along with a great benefits package, opportunities for clinical development with space to move into the extended and advanced practitioner roles and a team of supportive, friendly colleagues.
