Your patient list will be of mixed ages with a diverse range of conditions. This ranges from the elderly to children with development disorders. The impact that this role makes to people’s lives will not only give you job satisfaction but also the opportunity to work in an environment that benefits from human interaction.

Other benefits include managing your own day, getting to see a diverse range of people who have varying eye conditions and more importantly, the chance to make a difference to people’s lives.

As this role will be covering the Newcastle region, there will be no late nights or over-night stays. You will also have the company of an experienced Optical Dispenser, who will be at hand the set up the equipment and dispense. 

What’s on offer:

  • Only 8/9 tests per day!
  • Full time & Part time considered
  • Generous basic salary of upto £60,000
  • Monthly bonus
  • Company car allowance
  • 33 days annual leave entitlement
