Are you passionate about retail and offering the best customer experience? 

 

Our assistant roles at Specsavers are not your ordinary retail positions – you’ll join the team as an Optical Assistant bringing your valued retail experience & customer service knowledge to meet the caring values and optical expertise of our brand, making sure every patient receives the best experience in our stores. 

 

We are looking for someone with a background of providing a pro-active and first-class customer experience, with a real desire when it comes to customer care & the ability to communicate politely & professionally with all customers and colleagues. 

 

You’ll be responsible for assisting patients and ensuring the best customer journey throughout:

Welcoming customers into the store

  • Booking in eye tests
  • Using the latest up-to-date equipment to do general checks of the eyes, prior to seeing the Optometrist.
  • Providing style advice
  • Measuring frames
  • Repairing/adjusting frames
  • Taking phone calls

 

As a business that prides itself on providing supported development & exciting long-term careers, previous Optical experience isn’t essential – you’ll receive all the training needed and we will support you to develop your knowledge of the optical world, such as pre-screening patients, measuring frames and dispensing single vision, bifocal & varifocal lenses, working towards NHS guidelines and our own high standards.
