Optometrist - Jersey Role summary

Do you have a sense of fun, a need for a different pace of life and an entrepreneurial spirit? We have the position that will tick all these boxes for an Optometrist with Specsavers in Jersey.

This is a unique opportunity – yes, you will begin life on the island as an employed Optometrist, but we are also offering the opportunity to become a business owner on this jewel in the Channel Isles. Jersey is unique in that it benefits from the following:

  • Salary - up to £70k
  • Maximum Tax 20% - No VAT!
  • Relocation packages suited to your needs
  • Private Px's only - no NHS work
  • Partnership Opportunity
  • Excellent Schooling
  • No commuting

Your role in our store

We know that regardless of whom you work for, who you work with, and wherever you live in the UK -an eye-test is an eye-test, pure and simple. We can’t tell you that your 25+ minutes with your patients is any different to anywhere else - but what we can offer is a workplace where we want you to be part of our team, where you can really make a difference and potentially be the difference should you wish to become a Joint Venture Partner on the island. 

We want you to show us where your talents and interests lie, whether it is in IT, training, marketing, pre-reg supervision, PR, charity work, team building, or simply keeping track of professional matters. We want you to get that little bit extra out of your normal optometrist’s working day, and feel that your contribution matters to us.

What we are looking for

Alongside holding a BSc/MSc in Optometry and being registered with the GOC, you will be a confident, outgoing individual with a strong work ethic and willingness to succeed. You will be passionate about your job and enjoy a busy and sometimes challenging environment.

And for you....

All levels of experience will be considered on a temporary or permanent basis for this fantastic role. The package will include:

  • Salary up to £70,000
  • Relocation packages suited to your needs
  • A host of benefits available including pension scheme, death in service, medical/dental package, PHI
  • CET Training
  • Professional advancement courses and accreditations supported both practically and financially
  • GOC fees paid
  • Generous holiday entitlement
  • JVP progression opportunity

If you’d like to test the water first, we can arrange a visit for you to see and even work in the practice to introduce you to the area.

We like to combine professionalism with a sense of fun, so if you feel you can add a little spark to this practice please Jack Dorrian at Specsavers Recruitment Services on 01566 771 886 or jack.dorrian@specsavers.com
