Experience Specsavers

Our vision

Changing lives through better sight and hearing

Talk to anyone who works in our support teams or in one of our stores – and they’ll all tell you that Specsavers really does have a unique, can-do culture: the common threads are that we like to work hard, we get to develop and utilise our skills, helping us to achieve great things together.

We set ourselves some pretty lofty goals and work hard to support one another in reaching them. For our partners, this means having the support they need to build a successful business. For all our people, across our support teams and store teams, this means offering a personally rewarding career with a wide range of opportunities to develop and grow.

We invite you into a supportive family

Specsavers began more than 35 years ago with the vision of two optometrists: Doug and Mary Perkins, who set out to provide best value eye care to everybody.

Their passion for optometry has led Specsavers to become one of the world’s largest optical groups, delivering high-quality, affordable optical and audiology care in ten countries.

Specsavers - the place to work

It’s not just the investment we make in our people and culture that makes Specsavers the place to work. We have a broad framework to make sure that – when compared to any business, anywhere – we measure up. Our clearly defined programs targeted at developing skills and expertise, our investment in advancing professional qualifications (on and off the job), and our easy-to-understand career ladder set the tone, while the family-feel of our business is core DNA at Specsavers. And all the while, we strive to be the best, encouraging all team members in the support functions and in our owner-operated stores to dream big – and achieve.

Cultivating your experience

We understand that all team members are unique and bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to the role they play. That’s why we take a tailored and flexible approach to learning and development, offering access to a wide range of resources and support through our online learning platform.

At Specsavers you’ll have the opportunity to join webinars and virtual classrooms, share your experiences on our social media platform and attend a selection of workshops available to learn new skills or behaviours. You’ll also be able to consult with our in-house learning and development team if you’d like more customised support with your development.

Whatever your path in Specsavers, we commit to helping you to be the best you can be along the way.
