Whiteley is a small community, located between Southampton and Portsmouth. It is best known for its impressive shopping centre, with a huge range of upmarket shops, restaurants, open spaces and public art. Based just off the M27, Specsavers Whiteley is extremely accessible, with their Optometrists travelling from far and wide to work at this store.


Having opened in 2015 and having also had a refit only 6 months ago, Specsavers Whiteley is a bright, open and modern environment in which to work. They have 4 long form test rooms, both phoropters and trial frames in each room, OCT in store, and free parking!


What we’re looking for
Alongside being a qualified and GOC registered Optometrist, we are searching for someone who shares our store’s ethos. Someone who wants to grow, develop and offer exceptional customer care along the way. We want a practitioner who prides themselves on their clinical judgment, that isn’t afraid of a hands-on approach and who is keen to get involved and build rapport with the rest of the team. In summary, we’re looking for a skilled resident Optometrist to join us, be part of the team and assist in driving our practice forward.
