Our vision

Changing lives through better sight and hearing

Talk to anyone who works in our support team 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 we utilise our skills 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 eleven countries.
