Are you interested in a fulfilling opportunity within a smoothly-run practice? 

I’ve got an opportunity for you to join one of the most sought after optical companies in the UK. They have invested £40 million into their brand, and people, to ensure the patient gets the very best care, and the best patient journey on the high street. They are a brand that are taking a step to combat myopia.

My client promotes a working culture which prioritises patient care and well-being, and is looking for an optometrist with the same ethos. You will be working with a tight-knit, and capable, optical team with a variety of experience and backgrounds.

You’ll also offer their patients recommendations to the highest professional and ethical standards which is something their customers have come to expect. You can expect to do this via a three-way handover (this is a vital part of the patient journey and everyone in store knows this). You will have to use your knowledge to efficiently identify customer needs and recommend eye wear and eye care solutions.

Where is this great opportunity?

This opportunity is based in Barnstaple, which is one of the oldest boroughs in the UK. It is a really lively town with a great mixture of old and new architecturally styled buildings. 

What's on offer?

  • Salary to match the candidate's expertise - up to £68k on offer
  • Experienced support staff 
  • Relaxed testing times 
  • Great equipment
  • Best pension in the market
  • Medical Insurance for you and your family
  • 33 days holiday allowance (including Bank Holidays), increases to a maximum of 41 days after a few years of employment
