COVID-19 has affected many things and recruitment is no different. Whilst some industries have seen a rapid decline in hiring and a long-term impact, there have been a few that have seen demand soar. Optometry is definitely the latter.
To ensure safety for our OutsideClinic optometrists and patients, we have invested in some new apparatus, and we have even added a new design to our bespoke range of equipment that our optometrists use on a day to day basis.
Consumer shopping trends have significantly changed over the recent years and certainly over the last six months with the current Covid-19 pandemic. The retail sector has experienced a huge surge in online purchasing as result and we have also seen many high street shops struggle to financially survive during this period.
