Optometry roles

It all began more than 35 years ago with the vision of two optometrists, Doug and Mary Perkins, who set out to make a difference to people’s lives by providing best-value eyecare. Their passion for optometry continues to shape the lives and experience of our optometrists who are developing their careers with us. Like Doug and Mary, they are passionate about caring for the health of their patients’ eyes and making decisions that will transform the quality of their lives. 

We are dedicated to uncompromising professional and clinical excellence, which means your development is important to us and is fundamental to  transforming eye heath. We offer continuing education to ensure you can develop all aspects of your practice, including your professional development and a clear career path to clinic ownership.

Specsavers is committed to empowering opticians to provide services that allows them to utilize their entire skillsets and full scope of practice.
