The Store

Our Barry store is considered a medium sized store, compromising of 4 testing rooms with a choice of trial frames or phoropters. You'll be supported by our experienced team of Optical Assistant and Dispensing Opticians who will pick up all your pre-screening and dispensing, so you can focus on performing expert eye examinations.

Barry was voted the best place to live and work in the whole of Wales. The store itself is in a great location and is always very busy, which is fantastic for the store and its staff, keeping you engaged and always on the go. Barry is just a short trip into Cardiff and boasts 4 beaches, 4 country parks and 3 train stations, as well as free parking. Cardiff airport is just 10 minutes away.

  • Opportunity to develop clinically through EOS or commercially through ILM & Specsavers Pathway

As an experienced professional, you’ll be an expert at putting people at ease. You can talk customers through the eye examination process and explain their options in a clear, easy to understand way. What’s more, you’re organised and passionate about what you do – which means you keep accurate records and always have up-to-date knowledge of the latest developments in your field.

The right candidate will preferably be WECs accredited, although we can support you through this and should be someone who can work well with a friendly, supportive team.
