What the Green Room is?
The Green Room officially launched back in June 2018, as the platform for the community of candidates approved for business ownership with Specsavers, to find their very own partnership, while receiving support and guidance along the journey.
Why we decided to set it up?
To provide candidates with a dedicated support service and help fill the gaps on their journey to being Specsavers business owners.
What people can expect from it?
- 1:1 support for each Pathway approved candidate
- Visibility over all partnership opportunities via the Green Room website
- Monthly newsletters and weekly updates via the WhatsApp group
- Divisional Green Room events
- Facilitate meetings with the local Retail Support teams
- Support with the purchasing and finance process
- Introduction to the ‘Partner Mentor Program’
- Information and registration for the ‘Welcome to the Partnership’ event

‘The Green Room website is great and it was fantastic to have one place where I could find everything I needed. I was made aware of all opportunities that were available to me. Everything was clear and easy to find. You also receive texts and emails which are fantastic, they are full of information which was exactly what I wanted to know. Even though I was only in the Green Room a short time, it was still a great experience and I would highly recommend that you act quickly when you see something that interest you, most importantly never be afraid to ask.’ Claire Judge, Optometrist Director
‘I found the Green Room events extremely beneficial and I made some really strong connections with the people I met there. Meeting fellow Green Room candidates and RRM’s from different regions was certainly a highlight for me. My advice to current Green Room candidates would be to follow your instincts. If an opportunity interest you then make sure you pursue it. Keep in regular touch with the team and keep an eye on the emails and Green Room website as you never know when the right opportunity will come around.’ Ravi Kotecha, Optometrist Director
