Your future is clear at Specsavers Hedge End, where there’s always something exciting ahead.

 

Come and join our accomplished team as a Dispensing Optician at Specsavers Hedge End, where we are at the height of customer care. Join us and help work to ensure every single one of our customers receives the very best patient experience. We’re community-focused and we need someone ready to use their passion, skills, and experience to build on our ever-growing and loyal customer base.

 

Our Dispensing Opticians are the face of our clinic on the shop floor and usually an integral part of our store management team, so we’re keen to get you up to speed with management responsibilities. With ILM courses, pre-reg supervision and Specsavers Partnership Pathway available, we can guide you on your way to becoming a great leader. This – along with your clinical expertise – will stand you in good stead if you choose to become a store director yourself one day.

 

We’re dedicated to our customers, but what really makes this role stand out is that we offer a workplace with a difference – where people grow both personally and professionally.

  • Store performance bonus scheme.

  • Great opportunity for progression and development
  • SickPay
  • 33 days annual leave per annum
  • Enhanced family leave
  • Your birthday off
  • Outstanding clinical and professional development opportunities- happy to support with ILM/pathway for Directorship.
  • Support with CPD points.
  • Specsavers Enhanced Perks – Perks is our discounted benefits scheme.
  • Subscription to the “Headspace” App
  • WeCare – UK confidential employee helpline

 

The Role in a Nutshell:

  • Ensure that you always provide good levels of customer service to customers.
  • Liaise with Optometrists to ensure that each customer you dispense receives a consistent quality handover.
  • Manage aftersales service (including complaints and problem solving) in a customer service focused ‘can do’ manner.
  • Contribute to achievement of individual and team sales targets by demonstrating effective professional sales techniques.

 

Then there’s you

Alongside being a qualified and GOC registered Dispensing Optician, we are searching for someone who shares our store’s ethos. Someone who wants to grow, develop, and offer exceptional customer care along the way. We want a practitioner who prides themselves on their clinical judgment, that isn’t afraid of a hands-on approach and who is keen to get involved and build rapport with the rest of the team. In summary, we’re looking for a skilled Dispensing Optician to join us, be part of the team and assist in driving our practice forward.

 

About Specsavers:

Their passion for optometry has led Specsavers to become the largest privately-owned optical group in the world, delivering high-quality, affordable optical and hearing care. And it continues to shape the lives and experience of thousands of colleagues who are developing their careers with us across the globe. We are proud of how far we’ve come as a business, now we want to see you grow with us too.
