The importance of never losing sight of our mission
Specsavers has grown from a staff of two in 1984 to more than 30,000 today and from one store to more than 1,800. But the company was founded by optometrists and continues to put the highest medical and professional standards within reach of its customers. Our new ventures, such as audiology and home-visiting opticians, have continued to strengthen our mission: to help people to see and hear better.
Based in the greater Dublin area, you will be responsible for delivering practical group training workshops and support the delivery of training to all areas of the retail business as part of our blended learning framework. With your level of expertise, you will also develop, advise and coach the Store Trainers and work as a key business partner to support the wider stakeholder group on the delivery of the annual learning plan. You can expect to travel to our Kildare and Mallow training centres to deliver training, however, you should be able to travel to other locations in Ireland as needed for delivery.
You should have experience in a retail setting, delivering training workshops from induction through to manager level within both a technical and behavioural field and have an understanding of learning and development principles and theories. You can demonstrate your ability to coach and develop learners and possess experience to facilitate change. You have excellent interpersonal skills that help build and develop relationships as well as having a self disciplined working style to get the job done. The role requires frequent regional travel with the flexibility to travel nationally as needed so a clean driving licence is essential with the ability for the occasional overnight stay. You will receive a competitive salary, car allowance and excellent benefits package.
This is a great opportunity to use and develop your training experience and shape your future career with Specsavers.
