What you'll do

Optometrist, Washington, Tyne & Wear


Washington Specsavers is going through radical change; the store is now under new partnership, and with that comes team growth as well as an injection of investment to modernise the store, both aesthetically and technologically.


Here at Washington Specsavers, we are seeking Optometrists, at varying levels of experience to join our team and be apart of this exciting store transformation.


Whats on offer?  

  • Up to £60,000 plus 10k joining bonus for an experienced Optom
  • £45,000 plus 5k joining bonus for a newly qualified Optom and salary review after 12 months 
  • Opportunity of doing Pathway to Joint Venture Partnership
  •  A highly rewarding performance-based bonus scheme
  •  Health and dental cover
  •  Pension contribution
  •  Support with CET
  •  Exceptional clinical and professional development opportunities


Our Optometrists are the face of our professional practice, so we’re keen to get you up to speed outside the test room too. With training/course support, and Specsavers Partnership Pathway available, we can guide you on your way to becoming a great leader. This, along with your clinical expertise, will stand you in good stead especially if your chosen career path is to become a store director.  


We’re equipped with 3 test rooms and 1 lens room with, soon to be cutting-edge technology, so everything will be in place to let you focus on what you do best. 


What we’re looking for
You’ll need to be a qualified and GOC registered Optometrist with drive, passion and the ability to help this growing practice continue to build on its customer-focused culture. To be part of our team, you’ll need to provide that unique blend of customer care and professional excellence – which will make a big impact on the store’s overall success. Teamwork also forms a big part of our culture, so the ability to work well with other people is essential.
