Functional Nurse Assessor (RGN)

£38,000 per annum

Permanent Position

Full time- 37.5 hours per week

Based in Reading

The Role

I am seeking a quick-thinking and dedicated Qualified Registered General Nurse to work autonomously in a non-clinical role in the Reading area.

As a Functional Nurse Assessor you will be based in a clinic, working mostly autonomously, as you carry out one-to-one assessments of customers in relation to a variety of disability benefits in order to generate reports to the DWP.

These assessments focus on how a disability affects a customer's day to day life in performing work related activities. Prior to the face-to-face assessment, you will be required to review medical evidence to determine the suitability of a face-to-face assessment.

Most importantly, you must listen to customers and understand how their disability affects their day to day life in performing work activities.

The Person

You will be a fully qualified Registered General Nurse with a valid NMC pin and a minimum 2 years of post-registration experience within a clinical setting. You will possess a positive, empathetic and professional manner, while also utilising your excellent clinical, communication and interpersonal skills.

You will always ensure that professional practice standards and "best practice" are maintained in all areas of work, in accordance with the HCPC and NMC Codes of Conduct.
