Registration Requirements

To register for our PIP assessor roles, you will need to meet the following minimum requirements:

• A minimum of two years’ post-registration experience
• A current NMC/HCPC PIN with no restrictions to practice
• Strong literacy and IT skills

The Ideal Candidate

These roles are ideal for health professionals with experience of clinical examination and decision making (e.g. A&E or NHS Direct) who want to retain and use their care skills whilst working regular hours in an office environment.

Advanced written and verbal communication skills are required, as is an ability to multi-task and take control of any assessment. Interpersonal skills are also crucial, as well as the ability to write clear and concise reports and work autonomously in a fast-paced environment.

These roles would also suit healthcare professionals who are interested in functional assessor roles as the day-to-day duties are very similar.
