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.

The Role in a Nutshell:

  • Ensure that you provide good levels of customer service to customers at all times.

  • 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.
