Optometry Partnership

It all began nearly 40 years ago with the vision of two optometrists, Doug and Mary Perkins, who set out to make a difference to people’s lives. Join us as an Optometry Partner to build and grow your own independent clinic with the support of our team of experts.

Starting your own independent clinic along with owning shares of an optical retail store is an incredible opportunity to take control of your own future. With Specsavers, the ultimate dividend comes in the form of getting time back to focus on patient care, enabling a work-life balance, and uninterrupted family time when away from the clinic.

The process

Step 1 - Get in touch

Fill out our partnership enquiry form to connect with a partnership manager. They’ll get in touch to explore the idea of business ownership and organize a meeting to build on your knowledge and understanding of our business model.

Step 2 - Visit a Specsavers

With your application in process, drop by a location near you to see the store and clinic space for yourself. Reach out to one of our partners. They’ll be happy to talk through any questions you have. 

Step 3 - Get approved

During our candidate assessment session, we’ll work with you to identify areas of strength and where to focus for development.

Step 4 - Meet your partner

Once you’re approved, you’re matched you with a complementary partner. Through informal meetings, you’ll start to build a relationship, discuss your ambitions and your business future together.

Step 5 - Get started as a business owner

Once you’re all set with your documents, it’s time to officially get the keys to your new business, with comprehensive business support along the way.

Explore the store and clinic space

With the full support of Specsavers behind you and a business partner you can rely on, you have the autonomy to make your own decisions and grow your clinic or store. It’s an opportunity to benefit from the profits of the clinic or store that you operate, while growing a valuable asset for the future as you look forward to life after work.
