Our fantastic store has 5 testing rooms and all of the most up to date NIDEK equipment, including OCT and Phoropters, we have been established for around 19 years and have a fantastic and fun team in place who are highly trained in all areas. We even have some members including Locums who have been with us for 10 years!


We are also looking to relocate to a brand new 7 testing rooms store! This means we have plenty of progressions to offer.

With a focus on flexibility, we are open to full-time and part-time applicants and will consider any working pattern to suit you. 

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.  


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.


We’re fully equipped with 5 test rooms, the latest clinical technology, and a team of 37 – which includes fully trained optical assistants, so everything is in place to let you focus on what you do best.
