Good Afternoon!!

Firstly I would like to introduce myself and my company; my name is Danny Alaimo and I am a Managing Consultant of Vivid Optical, Optical Recruitment consultancy.

I do hope you are well and had an enjoyable festive period.

I am contacting you today in light of a post within a practice local to yourself that has just became available!

My client is looking for an optometrist to work as part of a team delivering total satisfaction to their customers through conducting thorough eye examinations. You’ll also offer their customers recommendations to the highest professional and ethical standards which is something their customers have come to expect. You’ll also use your knowledge to efficiently  identify customer needs and recommend eyewear and eye care solutions.

You will not only work for the company, you will also act as an ambassador, ensuring every customer is welcomed to the store and to ensure their expectations are exceeded throughout their time in your care.

You will also play an active role in the provision of mentoring the store team as well as providing technical advice and guidance to the store team to encourage the best practice at all times. Also you will work closely with the in store lab team to ensure all eye ware is produced to the correct specifications so that when a customer collects their order it has a quality seal of approval.


For your service you will be rewarded with the following;

Over all its one of the best packages in the county without doubt, they will look at all levels of experience and all will be treated equally. I have not listed all of the perks as their too long to list but I think bodes well enough as it sits.

Even if you are currently settled in your position, why not review this opportunity with an open mind.

Please let me know of any enquiries you may have. I.e. Will they look at PT? yes!

Its worth mentioning that these roles will be looking for starters in Jan, Feb, March and April.
