About the store

Specsavers in Dorchester first opened its doors in 2005. The store sits in a prominent position in the main pedestrianised shopping area and is firmly embedded within the local community. The loyal and growing customer base includes members of the large local retirement community along with the many tourists who visit this charming town.

In 2018 the store underwent an impressive refit and boasts 3 dedicated optical test rooms along with a multi-purpose room – all fully equipped with the latest clinical technology including OCT – meaning you will have everything you need to perform sight tests to the highest possible standards. The rare “horse shoe” layout of the shop floor also means that recently introduced social distancing measures have not had an impact on the customers journey. Specsavers Dorchester also offer Audiology services and is a spoke store to the main Bournemouth Hub.

A team of 12 dedicated and passionate colleagues call this store home. The existing Partner is really passionate about the clinical development of the team, and as the new Optometry Director you would have the scope to advise on training requirements, introduce new specialisms and build/shape the team further as required.

Store location

The store is located in the beautiful town of Dorchester, known for its rich culture and history – perfect for people looking to escape to the country. Based in the heart of Dorset, Dorchester is just 7 miles from Weymouth and 30 miles from Bournemouth, meaning you are never far away from award winning beaches!

What We Are Looking For

Alongside being a qualified and GOC registered Optometrist with the drive, passion and willingness to maintain the customer-focused culture and the high standards of this successful store. As the new Optometry Partner, you’ll be able to provide a unique blend of customer care and professional excellence. You’ll be able to build a rapport with the existing team, demonstrate excellent attention to detail and possess an ability to build strong relationships within the local community.

Is this you? Great!

About The Joint Venture Partnership

Joint venture partnership is the secret to our success here at Specsavers, with every store locally owned and led by its directors. Owning, leading and growing your very own business is considered by many to be the pinnacle of your career as an Optometrist. We believe that professional optics should be led by opticians just like you – this is your chance to become the leader you were born to be.
