Specsavers in Newtown, Powys are looking for a friendly and clinically ambitious Optometrist. We’re a community-focused store dedicated to ensuring that every one of our customers receives an excellent patient experience. We’re seeking an Optometrist ready to use their passion and knowledge to help us build on our ever-growing and loyal customer base. Join us at Specsavers in Newtown where we deliver the very best in customer care.




Nestled in the heart of Mid Wales, the charming town of Newtown is the perfect place to relax, unwind, and explore the surrounding countryside. Wrexham, Shrewbury and Telford are within a 1-hour commute by car and there are also excellent public transport links.


What’s on Offer

•    An annual salary of up to £65,000  depending on experience + £10k joining bonus paid after successful completion of probation (terms apply)

•    Outstanding clinical and professional development opportunities

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.
