An in-store trainer with her sights set on progression

Emma Woodhouse has her sights set on developing in her optical career and is currently in training to become a Dispensing Optician. So, when she was looking for a new role it was important to her that she found a store that could support her big dreams of professional growth. Now, as an In-Store Trainer and Trainee Dispensing Optician at Specsavers in Talbot Green, Emma is thriving in a progressive store that supports her career goals.

“Specsavers really stood out to me when I was looking for a new job because I wanted to work somewhere offering ongoing training and personal development. Since being here as an In-Store Trainer, I’ve found that I absolutely love the dynamic and fast pace of the store. The team are great fun to work with and I get job satisfaction every day when dealing with our patients.”

It was important to Emma that she found a store where she could set out on a long-term career, so she decided to work with Specsavers’ internal recruitment team, Specsavers Recruitment Services. With in-depth knowledge of every store and opportunity, there was no one better equipped to help her find her perfect opportunity.

“Working with Specsavers Recruitment Services was easy, they did all the leg work for me. My recruitment consultant helped me and he was always there if I had questions. He was a personable, friendly, down-to-earth professional and nothing was any trouble. My advice to anyone looking to talk to the team and join Specsavers would be to definitely go for it – you’ve got nothing to lose and everything to gain!”
