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 mainly in our Glasgow training centre, you will be responsible for delivering practical group training workshops and supporting 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 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. The role will require travel across the UK and in particular R.O.I to support 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 should also have the ability to coach and develop learners and possess experience to facilitate change. Additionally, you will have excellent interpersonal skills that will help you to 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 across R.O.I and the UK 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.
