Specsavers in Colchester is looking for an ambitious and commercially minded Audiologist to become their next Audiology Director and Store Partner. We want someone who is passionate about both transforming hear care and driving awareness of hearcare in their community; to help you to succeed, you’ll receive professional development and ongoing support from existing and experienced Optometry & Retail Partners. At Specsavers in Colchester you will have the opportunity to provide a first-class experience to every patient in addition to receiving an excellent package and the opportunity to build an investment for your future as an Audiology Partner.

What you'll do

Joint venture partnership is the secret to our success here at Specsavers, with every store locally owned and led by its directors. Owning, leading and growing your very own business is considered by many to be the pinnacle of your career as an Audiologist. We believe that professional audiology should be led by audiologists just like you – this is your chance to become the leader you were born to be.

At Specsavers, the patient always comes first. Our business ownership model allows you to use your expertise and experience to give the gift of hearing back to people who need it most, all whilst growing a business and building an asset for your (and your family’s) future.

First and foremost, you’ll still be a clinician dedicated to changing the lives of your patients – but now, as a business owner, you’ll also be changing the lives of your very own team. Above all, you’ll be in a position to support the future of the profession and have a real feeling of pride every morning when you walk into your own business.

Who you are

Alongside being a qualified and HCPC registered Audiologist with the drive, passion and willingness to maintain the customer-focused culture and the high standards of this successful store. As the new Audiology Partner, you’ll be able to provide a unique blend of customer care and professional excellence.

Is this you? Great!
