Our Optometrists provide eye examinations and a contact lens service that meet high clinical standards as well as strict NHS guidelines. Equally, they provide every customer with clear advice and the peace of mind that comes with being in expert hands. To be part of our team, you’ll need to provide the same unique blend of customer care and professional excellence – which will make a big impact on the store’s overall success.


As a professional, you’ll be an expert at putting people at ease and welcoming customers with a naturally personable approach.
