Specsavers in Seaford opened 16 years ago, and we are looking for an Optometrist who is forward thinking and ready to use their passion and knowledge to help build on our ever-growing and loyal customer base.

We are conveniently located on a busy high street and there are excellent public transport links as well as street parking near by to the store. Seaford is a highly performing store as well as being Centre of Excellence accredited and a Platinum Employer.


In addition to this role, we are also recruiting within our sister store in Eastbourne, and you would have the opportunity to work between both stores which is what many of our Optometrists currently do. Eastbourne boasts 9 test rooms, all fully equipped with the highest and newest clinical technology.

We are passionate about the clinical & professional development of our team, and as our new Optometrist, we want to support you every step of the way. Through open conversations and regular 1-2-1’s, we will work together to tailor-make a career that suits you. There are so many areas to explore; from WOPEC qualifications and independent prescribing to paediatric accreditations or enhanced optical services, ILM courses, Pre-Reg supervision and the Specsavers Partnership scheme (Pathway). Along with your clinical expertise – this will stand you in good stead if you choose to become a store director yourself one day. Whatever your ambitions, we’ll do everything we can to help you be the best you can be.

As part of our team, you’ll need to be able to provide a unique blend of customer care and professional excellence.
