Future Talent

At Specsavers, we're as ambitious as you are

We are on a mission to make eye and hearing care accessible to the many
and we’re always looking for talented people like you to join us.

Your future starts here

If you’ve set the bar high, aspire to be a leader in the field of product, retail or marketing and you want to make a difference in the world, then our Future Talent Programme could be for you.

We’ll provide you with:

  • insight into our business
  • access to our first class learning and development offer, and,
  • the opportunity to engage directly with our leadership team.

Over 18 months you’ll begin to carve your path to future leadership roles while being part of an enthusiastic and highly ambitious team. Then, towards the end of the programme, you’ll have the opportunity to move into a permanent role that suits your talent and ambitions. 

Hunger for learning

We offer all the tools you need to grow.
We have a wealth of learning and development opportunities,
both on a professional and personal level that will keep you
up to speed on your chosen area of the business.

Ready, set, go!

The programme consists of 3 placements in our product, retail and marketing functions – for up to 6 months each. You’ll lead or assist in projects and have clear objectives to work towards – all aimed at making a difference at Specsavers and for yourself. 

100-day intro

Nothing beats a good intro. The programme will kick-off with an introduction period of 100 days – in which you will get to know the business and visit various stores and support offices across Northern Europe and in the UK. 

Pack a bag!

There’ll be travel. You’ll visit the UK (south of England and Guernsey in the Channel Islands) and also other Northern European countries. In fact, you may need to relocate for your placements. So you’ll enjoy the full experience, on location.

We will make you the best you can be


You must hold a degree in business studies, retail, marketing or a related discipline. You’ve either just graduated or have a few years of work experience in these areas. 

Dream big

You’d love to work in a retail business within a product, retail or marketing function – whether that’s in your own country or abroad. Our Future Talent programme makes your dreams our experience.

Big picture

Strategic thinking is second nature to you. You have excellent interpersonal skills plus confidence in building great relationships and influencing others.

In light of the ongoing situation with Covid-19, we have decided to pause all recruitment for our support offices across Northern Europe. These vacancies have therefore been removed from our career sites. We continue to take a proactive approach to protect both candidates and our colleagues, and we thank you for your understanding.
