Growing your career with Case Management can be a fulfilling and beneficial experience, and ILS are proud to have over 25 years of experience in the industry.
What is a Case Manager?
Working within the medicolegal field, a Case Manager’s goal is to help the client regain and maintain their best quality of life. Work can include recruiting and managing carers and support workers, arranging accommodation adaptations, facilitating leisure activities, supporting clients through school, college or work placements, and liaising with fund holders to ensure adequate funding is always available to meet the client’s needs.
With their client, and the client’s relatives, a Case Manager will identify and prioritise goals and work closely with families, fund-holders, and care teams to achieve them and support every aspect of their client’s wellbeing.
Case managers have one of the most rewarding jobs in the care field. By utilising your existing skills and experience, you can make a real difference to a client’s life.
Not only this, but case management in the private sector gives unique opportunities. You can be involved from the start of a client’s rehabilitation, building a good rapport and working relationship. They can be part of this journey, long or short, and see their clients achieve their goals, working to access cutting edge opportunities and services.
Case management is an opportunity to progress your career. You will be using your skills and experiences from your extensive clinical background but will also be playing a lead role in managing the overall package of care for your client.

A great career!
I'm Eliot Lamb and I have been a member of the ILS Case Management team since 2006. Working as a Case Manager and Neurological Occupational Therapist with adults with complex needs as a result of sustaining a traumatic brain injury, I assist them to maximise their own potential in self-care, leisure and vocational activities.
It's challenging work but I absolutely love my job. Joining ILS gave me the unique opportunity to combine my extensive experience in Occupational Therapy with the freedom to work using the person-centred approach that I have always advocated. This way of working is part of the DNA of the company and as individuals within the therapy team, we are actively encouraged to use our own professional judgement to assess and recommend solutions from the full range of therapy, equipment and adaptations that the client and their family need to bring about the best possible outcomes.
With fewer restrictions on my professional working practices than in many other establishments, I have the freedom to innovate and put into practice anything that I believe is the perfect match for my client's needs. Many of the families I work with have been involved in a litigation process as a result of the health difficulties they are facing. We are there to actively deliver the solutions that help them in the next phase of their lives and that's very rewarding.
With a 26-year heritage behind it and with a CEO who started out in OT, ILS is still the UK's leading family-friendly independent Case Management company and the career benefits of joining them have been considerable. These include an in-house Payroll service, access to a fantastic mentoring programme and a whole suite of in-house training opportunities. Together with an excellent Client HR recruitment service for engaging care teams to work alongside me, this all leaves me free to focus on individual and family needs.
