Join our team as an Optical Assistant, and you’ll discover why at Specsavers, we pride ourselves on providing the foundation for exciting, long-term careers – with previous optics experience we can build your knowledge offering varied and challenging internal progression through exclusive courses to become a Dispensing Optician, an instore trainer, manager or even to become a future business partner.

 

Specsavers began more than 35 years ago with the vision of two optometrists, Doug and Mary Perkins, who set out to provide best-value eyecare to everybody. Their passion for optometry has led Specsavers to become the largest privately-owned optical group in the world, delivering high-quality, affordable optical and hearing care in 10 countries. And it continues to shape the lives and experience of thousands of colleagues who are developing their careers with us across the globe.

  • If you can’t do everything on the list, don’t worry we will support and develop you so you are confident performing this task unsupervised.

 

As an Optical Assistant, you’ll make sure every customer gets a great experience when they come into our store. It means listening to what they want, explaining our offers and products, and dispensing single vision, bifocal and varifocal lenses. You’ll work to NHS guidelines (as well as our own high standards), give good, clear advice and make a positive impression, thanks to your polite and professional approach.

We’ll continue to develop and expand your knowledge of vision problems, eyecare and our products. You’ve already demonstrated that you’re a natural when it comes to customer care, you’re articulate, good with people with an organised approach and always happy to help, so you’ll fit right in as a valuable member of our friendly store team, joining a business that’s going places.
