About The Role


Specsavers have an exciting opportunity for a GOC registered Optometrist in Peckham. We’re seeking an Optometrist ready to use their passion and knowledge to help us build on our ever-growing and loyal customer base. 


Specsavers in Peckham are a community-focused store, dedicated to ensuring that every one of our customers receive market leading patient experience (we really do, we’ve acheived the highest customer service levels in the region on many occasions!). You will be supported by a great team of Optometrists, as well as the wider team. The team love to get together with social events such as the annual summer and Christmas party.


We are passionate about the clinical development of our team and as our new Optometrist, we would support you with extra courses and specialisms that interest you. Whatever your ambitions, from WOPEC qualifications and independent prescribing to paediatric accreditations or enhanced optical services, we’ll do everything we can to help you be the best clinician you can be. 


Peckham is a throng of colours as stalls sell fruit, veg, clothes, handbags and trainers, jumbled up with the smells of saltfish and raw meat. The lesser known Burgess Park has a serene lake and well-used community barbecue area. Get there early on sunny weekends to bag a grill.


What We’d Love To See


The right person for this position will be confident, possess a strong worth ethic and a willingness to succeed. You’ll be passionate about your job and enjoy a fast-paced environment. We are looking for an Optometrist who will go the extra mile for our customers and someone who encourages their colleagues to do the same. In summary, we’re looking for a high calibre resident Optometrist to join us and assist in driving this excellent practice forward.


Our store is an accredited Platinum Employer – this means you can expect an exceptional employee experience every single day you work here. The Platinum Employer Scheme is part of the Specsavers drive to become a famous place to work. Stores with this accreditation have been verified on five key employer standards: Recruitment, Performance Management and Reward, Talent Management, Learning and Development and Employee Engagement.
