Making a difference - in the community

Ever wondered how working in domiciliary is different from working in store as an optometrist? Optometrist partner Zetun Arif and customer service partner Charlotte McGimpsey talk us through some of the key differences.

The perfect work/life balance

There is real flexibility in domiciliary. You can work part-time, with hours tailored to suit. And you can work some days in store to give you even more variety if you want to. It’s a great work/life balance, giving you more time to do the things you love and be with the people you love.

Closer to the customer and community

When a patient lets you into their home, they let you into their life. Gaining a patient’s confidence and trust plays an even greater part of your role in domiciliary than it does for your store-based colleagues. Because you spend so much of your time out and about, it stands to reason that you’ll become a more integral part of the community.
