Joint Venture Partnership

Let our vision inspire you

Without our commitment to partnership, we would not be the business we are today. We are committed to providing store partners with clear strategic direction and first-class business support. That way, they can deliver the very best service and care to their customers.

The Specsavers Joint Venture Partnership model is one based on mutual trust and understanding; these values also underpin the way we work with our colleagues and suppliers – and ensures we have owner-operators in every store.

We believe everyone should benefit from the very best vision and hearing to improve their quality of life. This is why our goal is to bring accessibility and excellence in optical and hearing healthcare to the whole community. We want you to join us on that journey.

As a Specsavers Partner, you are the master of your own fate. Build your own team, look after your customers, serve your community, create an asset for your family’s future and enjoy the profits of all your hard work.

As we have a range of suppliers, you can offer the best range of products to your customers without KPIs and sales targets influencing your clinical decisions.

Our partnership model is key to our success, and together, we can change the Australian and New Zealand audiology landscape for the better through professionalism, accessibility, awareness, transparency, and affordable pricing.
