Dispensing Optician in Independent Practice / Specialist Eye Clinic

This is an opportunity for a qualified dispensing optician to join a highly regarded, long established, clinically minded, ethical, independent practice.

This is a permanent position but temporary and locum appointments will also be considered, for 1, 2 or 3 days per week.

The successful candidate will provide and oversee our dispensing optical service working closely with our optometrists and practice team.

Our practice has a reputation for providing excellent customer care, and high quality, professional, personal optometry and optical services. We are proud of our 100% 5* rating on NHS Choices website.

We value our clients’ individual needs, prioritise the importance of eye health and good vision and create an atmosphere where all patients feel comfortable. We aim to provide good quality, reliable and suitable products.

We have a unique partnership with Leeds Teaching Hospitals to provide the Wetherby Eye Clinic – a NHS community ophthalmology service. Our two resident optometrists have many years’ experience in hospital and clinical practice.

As a small practice, all staff are encouraged to work in a flexible way, working as a team, to cover for colleagues, even where the task is not formally part of their prescribed role.

We are looking for an individual who has the necessary dispensing skills and experience, supports the values of the practice, and has the ability to work closely within a small professional team.

The specific responsibilities, additional roles, and the required skills and competencies are detailed in the full job description.
