Mobile Optometrist, Leightons Opticians and Hearing Care - Company wide but primarily in the Kent/East Sussex area

Lead a life less ordinary.

You’re different. Not for you the 9 to 5, or the same set of 4 walls? You thrive on change. Mixing it up from day to day, bringing your knowledge and clinical expertise to multiple stores.

A diverse set of customers keeps you stimulated and always growing in your role. And you’re a much-valued member of many teams.

You take longer days and travel in your stride, knowing you can kick back and enjoy your blissfully long 4-day weekends. Ah, the beauty of a rolling 4-day week. And did we mention that most weekends are your own? We’ll only ever ask you to work one in three. Deal?

Naturally, you’ll be a great communicator, a born carer and commercially minded. Bring us your passion and drive. In return, we’ll give you a competitive salary plus an attractive benefits package and a great place to work.

TIME.  At Leightons, we know that enjoying your job coming from having the time to do it well. We believe in taking the time to deliver a genuinely personalised and caring service, so our standard eye examination lasts 30 minutes or longer.

CARE.  Clinical excellence is at our heart, so we are always investing in new ways to make sure that our customers get the most thorough eye examination possible. That’s why we offer OCT in every store and are increasing our suite of Optomap technology.

SUPPORT.  Our optometrists are supported by fully qualified DOs, highly trained optical assistants, a bespoke training academy, CET clinical conferences and a dedicated training academy.
