Optometrist - Newbury, Berkshire
Due to expansion, we are looking for an experienced Optometrist to help drive our business forward at Specsavers in Newbury, Berkshire. You will be joining an established team in a friendly store that continues to grow, year on year.
Us and you
Specsavers has been going from strength to strength ever since the business started back in 1984. 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.
You will be a relaxed, yet driven individual that is keen to develop both your career and the store by potentially supervising a pre-reg and getting involved in enhanced optical services.
Set along the banks of the River Kennet and the Kennet and Avon Canal, Newbury has a fresh, rural atmosphere combined with great shopping facilities and attractions. The retail offer is a good mix of well known high street names and local independents.
The countryside surrounding Newbury is part of the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Kennet and Avon Canal runs right through the district from the outskirts of Reading to Hungerford. Newbury is home to a top class racecourse as well as being home to the country's finest racing stables. If you like to spend time on the golf course, coarse fishing or strolling along the banks of the Kennet and Avon Canal, cycling or cantering over the rolling Berkshire Downs, there is plenty to offer everyone.
This is an established practice with a diverse, experienced team in place that work alongside our Optometrists to offer a first-class experience to our loyal customer base. Following a recent refit, we will have 5 test rooms all offering state of the art equipment for you to be able to do what you do best. Currently we have a team of 30 members of staff which is set to grow with our business so we can continue to develop our practice and the services we offer.
In return for your professional expertise, we are offering:
A very impressive salary package
A transparent bonus scheme to reward you for great performance
5 week annual holiday entitlement
Specsavers Medical/Dental package
GOC and College fees covered
Potential relocation package
Death in Service
Progression including all clinical enhancement courses including WOPEC, JVP directorship pathway and ILM management courses are all supported
