About Specsavers:
Specsavers began 40 years ago with the vision of two optometrists, Doug, and Mary Perkins, who set out to provide best-value eyecare to everybody. 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

 

What’s on Offer?

  • An annual salary of up to £65,000
  • A strong performance-based bonus scheme (OTE around £88,000 in your first year, including Welcome Bonus and Relocation Assistance)
  • Holiday allowance of 33 days per year
  • Your birthday off 
  • Private health and dental cover
  • Pension contribution

We’re fully equipped with 4 test rooms, the latest clinical technology (including OCT), and a team of 18 – which includes fully trained optical assistants, so everything is in place to let you focus on what you do best.

 

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.

 

What we’re looking for

Alongside being a qualified and GOC registered Optometrist, 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 resident Optometrist to join us, be part of the team and assist in driving our practice forward.
