Investing in you

To continue to be at your best you need to keep your skills and knowledge fresh. We know how important continuous learning is and that’s why we offer paid professional development time to everyone as a way of helping you carve out this time to focus on your own skills and growth.

We’re committed to investing in you, so you can grow your skills and be your best. We provide a dedicated learning and development professional to support you throughout your career as well as access to career planning tools and an annual ‘Grow at Specs’ Week to help inspire and encourage you to grow your career in a way that works for you.

Cultivating your experience

We have a wide range of skills and expertise in our business, and you’ll have all types of development available to you.  From technical systems training to behavioural skills development to leadership development programs, we make sure you have the development you need available to help you build your skills of choice.

Growing our team

We’re focused on investing our people and helping you cultivate the career you want. If becoming a Specsavers partner is your goal, we support you to achieve this through our Pathway program. Designed for optical and retail professionals working with Specsavers, this intensive, six-month program will equip you with business knowledge and skills you need to take the step into partnership.

A tailored approach

We have a dedicated internal team who understand both the needs of our team and our business, who ensure we have fresh, quality learning  available. We know we can’t do everything internally, so we also partner with world class experts to deliver learning to our organisation regularly and invite well-known speakers to come to us to share their insights and learnings from their experiences.
