See what’s possible with our Traineeship

Discover what you’re best at!

We know how it feels. As a newly graduate, you may not know where to start your career. Luckily, there's plenty of variety on offer at Specsavers. Besides completing two placements in different areas like marketing, finance, human resource, or design, you’ll also lead and assist projects to explore your limits and ultimately discover the area that makes you the best you can be.

12 months in career heaven

You’ll receive 12 months of structured development. For the first six months, you’ll be working in a specialised function in one of our country offices near you. Every Friday will be dedicated to your career development and activities with your fellow programme peers. For the remaining six months, we’ll decide your next role together and do a host of events before you move into your permanent role in the business.

A fast pace that gets you in the fast lane

You can look forward to working in an exciting environment where no two days will be the same. With a fast pace like ours, you’ll be encouraged to discover new skills and push yourself like never before.

Pack a bag!

We’re a global business, with stores and offices across Northern Europe and the UK. You’ll have the opportunity to visit and work alongside some of our other country colleagues, so be sure to pack a bag and be ready for take-off.

Investing in all of you

We don’t just invest in your development; we invest in your health, too. That’s why, along with a competitive salary and bonus plan, we also offer health insurance, a pension scheme and – of course – a pair of free specs or contacts.

Ready to make it possible?

This traineeship is open to trainees, graduates, and those who have taken other routes too. You’ll likely be in the early stages of your career or perhaps looking for a place to explore new opportunities.

Wij helpen jou het beste uit jezelf te halen

Meet talented Natalie!

When Natalie finished her studies back in 2018, she didn’t know what she wanted to do. She had a creative background and got really drawn to the mix of creativity and aesthetics that Specsavers products offered. So, she went ahead and applied for our Traineeship. Since then, it’s safe to say that Natalie has been keeping creative! Natalie has now worked in both our Trading and eCommerce departments and today, she works with the advancement of our contact lenses.

Meet our Talent, Nina!

Nina joined our Traineeship back in 2020. She spotted an advert on LinkedIn and jumped at the opportunity to apply. Since being on the Traineeship, Nina has gotten many opportunities to develop fast. She’s worked with local marketing, supply chain, and now sustainability development.

Caring career support

We’ve always done things differently – the same goes for our Traineeship. Whether you’re a graduate, trainee, or experienced professional, you’ll get personal support from our senior leaders. Throughout your traineeship, they’ll be there to help you understand everything you need to know about their teams. You also get to check in with your fellow trainees every Friday to share stories and do some fun activities together.

From Maarssen to Copenhagen

We’ll support you every step of the way to get you settled for your personal traineeship. However, to get you off to the best start, you’ll need to be able to easily get to one of our support offices in either Maarssen, Copenhagen, Aalborg, Oslo, or Gothenburg. In case there’s an open placement for you to spend in one of our other offices, we’ll cover the costs to get you there.

The route to your career

12-month traineeship with the opportunity to experience at least two roles in the business – could be across any function such as Marketing, Operations, Technology and more. 

Fridays for you and your peers

First placement role includes structured development and activities every Friday, together with your fellow trainees for the first six months.

Develop different skills fast

Second placement role is selected based on a one-to-one conversation about what role you’d like to take on next. Could be you’d want to stick to the same function or try something new.

Events to make friends

Three development events will take place in your second placement to unify you and your fellow trainees once in for all, face-to-face.

One last stop

Big celebration event with your fellow trainees to mark the end of your year-long traineeship before you move into your permanent roles in the business.
