About The Role


Specsavers in Sidcup have an exciting opportunity for an Optometrist to join their team. With 3 clinics running most days, we have 3 test rooms fitted with the latest equipment including phoropters and OCT. We are proud of our team, so would be really focused on Optometrists that love to work as a team to ensure that our valued patients have an excellent experience. 


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.

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.
