There are so many areas to explore; The Specsavers Partnership scheme (Pathway) as well as extra courses and specialisms that interest you.

What we’re looking for

Our Optometrists provide eye examinations and a contact lens service that meet high clinical standards as well as strict NHS guidelines. Equally, they provide every customer with clear advice and the peace of mind that comes with being in expert hands. To be part of our team, you’ll need to provide the same unique blend of customer care and professional excellence – which will make a big impact on the store’s overall success.

As a professional, you’ll be an expert at putting people at ease and welcoming customers with a naturally personable approach. You will talk customers through the eye examination process and talk through their options with them. What’s more, you must be passionate about what you do with an aptitude for organisation – which means you keep accurate records and always have up-to-date knowledge of the latest developments in your field.
