Store team careers

Optical / Retail Assistant

A career with clarity

Optical Assistants are an integral part of any store team and crucial to the customer service journey.

Our Optical Assistants are the face of Specsavers, providing expert advice to our customers on our extensive range of fashionable frames and contact lenses.

At Specsavers, you can also aim to own your own Specsavers store one day. Many of our store partners began their Specsavers journey as Optical Assistants and now lead enthusiastic teams in their own stores across the country.

The face of Specsavers

For this role, we accept applications from individuals both with or without previous optical experience, so if you have a passion for delivering high levels of customer service and building relationships within a team, we want to hear from you. In return, we’ll offer a supportive and enjoyable working environment, where ongoing training and development opportunities are readily available.

Always learning

As a business, we’re dedicated to nurturing talented individuals to ensure they thrive. As an Optical Assistant, you will be encouraged to boost your knowledge and learn new skills throughout your time at Specsavers. We offer several training courses specialising in a variety of areas, from dispensing through to leadership and more.
