What you'll do

 

How about relocating to the happiest town in Britain?  Specsavers Hexham are looking for a talented Optometrist to work in their fantastic store alongside their dedicated long serving staff members. 

 

Hexham really is a gem of a location, a Northumberland town brimming with landscape views, beautiful architecture and currently undergoing significant investment. Usually bustling with cafés, restaurants and independent shops, Hexham has been voted the happiest place to live in Britain!  If you are considering a family move, Hexham boasts high performing schools.  For commuters, Hexham has excellent transport links east and west – being just a 30-minute drive/train ride from Newcastle Upon Tyne and under an hour from Carlisle.  Step outside of the town, you will find beautiful national parks as well as historical walks such as Hadrian’s wall. 

 

Specsavers Hexham look after their staff, provide market-leading training, access to cutting-edge technology and personalised development plans.  The store has a great reputation for staff progression and unparalleled support, which is evident in our Director’s success, having recently taken on the store.  Teamwork is important, so we hold regular team building events such as meals out or days out; one of our outings involved us all driving a tank!  

 

 

What’s on Offer?

  • An outstanding annual salary of up to £55,000 dependent on experience
  • £10k welcome or relocation bonus
  • Part-Time option
  • Full-Time option 
  • Or 12-month fixed term contract with accommodation support
  • Flexibility of working hours
  • Pension contribution
  • Outstanding clinical and professional development opportunities
  • Access to the latest clinical technology such as OCT

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, who isn’t afraid using a hands-on approach, who’s 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 our dream team and assist in driving our successful practice forward.
