Norwich was traditionally known as the chief city of east Anglia and is located in Norfolk. It is also well known to be the most complete medieval city in the UK with its cobbled streets and ancient buildings not to mention the idyllic river Wensum which flows through the city toward the Norwich Castle. 

We are passionate about your clinical development as an optical professional and we are committed to supporting you on extra courses and specialisms that interest you. Whatever your ambitions, from WOPEC qualifications and Independent Prescribing to Paediatric Accreditations and Enhanced Optical Services, we’ll do everything we can to help you be the best clinician you can be. 


Our Optometrists are an integral part of our store management team, so we’re keen to get you up to speed outside the test room too. With ILM courses, Pre-Reg supervision and the Specsavers Partnership scheme (Pathway) all available to explore. Along with your clinical expertise – this will stand you in good stead if you choose to become a store director yourself one day.
