Specsavers – Bayshore Shopping Centre, Ottawa ON
At Specsavers, we’ve been driven by our purpose of changing lives through better sight for over 35 years. We’re the world’s largest, privately-owned optical retailer serving 41 million customers in over 2,500 businesses in 11 countries. But we’re not just impressive numbers, we’re about industry-leading quality. Founded and led by two optometrists, we’re committed to provide advanced equipment, product excellence, comprehensive training, and global clinical leadership – all tailored to you and the needs of your customers and patients.
Opticians are at the heart of our purpose to make expert care available to all. Like you, we know the value and expertise licensed and registered opticians bring to eyecare for customers and patients – that’s why we’re on a mission to elevate the role of all opticians in Canada from within. We believe in supporting the growth of the next generation of opticians through immersive student placement experiences that not only enable you to successfully complete the program requirements set out by your college – but also to empower you in providing the best eyecare and eyewear for your customers.
Your student co-op placement opportunity
We’re dedicating the time and resources to ensure that you get the most out of your placement experiences. Under the supervision and delegation of Licensed/Registered Opticians, you will be provided an immersive and supportive environment to deepen your knowledge and experience. We have a strong track record in providing student opticians with opportunities for a rewarding career as you move along the path in becoming the eyecare professionals you aspire to be.
