Domiciliary Optometrist - Devon / Cornwall Area Role summary

Due to the constant growth of our business, we are now looking for a patient-focussed Domiciliary Optometrist to cover the Plymouth and Cornwall areas.


Healthcall Optical Services, now part of Specsavers, is one of the Country’s leading providers of home sight tests to individuals in their own homes, residential and nursing homes. Since becoming part of Specsavers, each region is growing considerably so there has never been a better time to consider a domiciliary career.

Our Region:

We are a large region scoping from Somerset and Wiltshire, right the way down to Cornwall. We are now looking for an Optometrist to cover the Plymouth and Cornwall areas providing a first class eyecare experience alongside our experienced optical assistant to patients unable to get to a store due to physical or mental disability. The majority of our patients (85%) are seen in their own homes with the remaining being seen in local nursing homes. The M5 means that our region is easily commutable, making working in this beautiful area of the country that bit easier.

Given that we are closely linked with the Specsavers Plymouth group of practices, there is also the option to work within a dual role split between working in store and domiciliary if you want the best of both worlds.

The Role:

In this flexible and varied position, you will be travelling throughout the Plymouth and Cornwall areas with an optical assistant, working in partnership, you will provide a professional, personal test to our customers, testing using the latest equipment and advising on the best products for them. With Specsavers Domiciliary, the patient is our main focus, so with less pressure on test time and targets, you can focus on doing what you do best. 

The Package:

In return for your professional expertise and passion, we can offer the following package:

• Basic salary of up to £60,000 D.O.E
• Company car 
• Fuel allowance
• Benefits including dental cover and pension scheme
• Generous 5 week holiday entitlement
• Monday – Friday working, NO WEEKENDS, 9am – 5.30pm
• Progression opportunity including support through clinical courses and DJVP directorship pathway
• Part time and full time opportunities available

Flexibility is key, and if you are interested in domiciliary, we are open to building a package to suit you.
