Optometrist - Harrogate Role summary

An attractive opportunity has opened for a driven Optometrist in our Harrogate Specsavers store. This store is a part of the UK's most trusted optical brand and has enjoyed a strong period of growth recently – so as a result are looking to add and strengthen their team.

Specsavers has been going from strength to strength, ever since the business started back in 1984. We strive for the highest clinical standards – and believe that the customer should be at the heart of everything we do. We also recognise that our people are critical to our past and future success – so we do everything we can to make sure they get the experience and career they’re looking for: from outstanding training and a personal development plan, to excellent benefits and unstinting support. The business has nearly 1,500 stores across 12 countries – and is still growing. We want you to be part of this outstanding success story.

The role in a nutshell:

You’ll complete eye examinations and contact lens appointments whilst driving our conversions and average order value through delivering excellent customer service

Our requirements:

  • All candidates must be registered with GOC as specified with the regulatory authority
  • Achievement of core competencies as specified by college of optometrists and approved by the GOC
  • Exceptional customer service skills
  • Effective communicator - both verbal and written

What’s on offer?

If this role is for you we have a fantastic package on offer, including:

  • A fantastic salary package
  • Flexible working arrangements including hours to suit working parents
  • Medical and dental package
  • Generous holiday entitlement
  • Solid progression plan in place suited to your career goals

The Key Information:

In summary, we’re looking for a high calibre resident optometrist to join us and assist in driving this excellent practice forward. The store boasts a varied patient base with a team of over 40 experienced and well trained support staff at hand. Having recently undergone a refit, you can expect fresh test rooms with trial frames and phoropters available.

If career progression is what you’re looking for then the supportive directors at this store will give you all the tools you need to join Specsavers Pathway, eventually opening the door for you to become a director of your own store!  Or, clinical progression is your first port of call, then we’ll support you here too – for example, you may want more training in Enhanced Optical Services; the opportunities to grow are endless.

This store is an accredited Platinum Employer, which means you can expect an exceptional employee experience every single day you work here. The Platinum Employer Scheme is part of our drive to become a famous place to work. Stores with this accreditation have been verified on five key employer standards: Recruitment, Performance Management and Reward, Talent Management, Learning and Development and Employee Engagement.
