Partnership explained

The joint venture partnership model

For those with the drive to make it happen, becoming a partner at Specsavers is a fantastic way to take control of a business while avoiding the many risks of starting up on your own. Back in 1984, Doug and Mary Perkins realised that for an optical professional to really be part of the business, they had to have a stake in its ownership and profits and so they developed the ground-breaking joint venture partnership (JVP) model. This model is now also available for our domiciliary and audiology professionals.

What is partnership?

Partners are A shareholders; in charge of the day-to-day running of the business, they receive the profits and enjoy capital growth. They also receive a market salary and other benefits from the joint venture business entity, to give them that extra layer of security.

Specsavers is a B shareholder; in return for our best-in-class support, we receive a percentage of the turnover as a management fee.

COVID-19 - Information for candidates
What we are doing to care for each other during the coronavirus outbreak

The safety and wellbeing of our colleagues, candidates and customers is our first priority.  Given the evolving COVID-19 situation, we want you to know that we are taking this situation very seriously and ensuring we are taking appropriate steps to look after each other.

We are carefully monitoring the situation and adjusting our ways of working in accordance with government advice. As a consequence of the situation we have made the difficult decision to pause some of our recruitment activity until further notice. We do still have some active vacancies online but we will, of course, take the necessary precautions to ensure the safety of our candidates and colleagues. This means that any interviews scheduled will be conducted via phone or using virtual meeting facilities – your recruiter will guide you through the process. 

We continue to take a proactive approach to protect both candidates and our colleagues, and we thank you for your understanding.
