Are you an experienced Optometrist looking for a more senior role with an established and value driven business that recognises you for your clinical professionalism and puts its people first? Does the opportunity of a Joint Venture Partnership with a local practice interest you?
At Visioncall we passionately believe that by improving levels of sight we can transform the lives of our patients by enabling them to see the world better. It’s a big idea and it’s the beating heart of everything we do. Everyone has a fundamental right to sight. This purpose has been at the core of what Visioncall do for over twenty years. We are the leading home eye care company and consider ourselves fortunate to work in partnership with some of the biggest and brightest care home groups across the UK. With 10 practices across the UK, we are a small niche business and employ just over 200 people.
Visioncall’s ownership vision is an exciting new opportunity for local leadership teams to enhance their careers in healthcare management and to reap the rewards that come with practice ownership. Being part of a wider family with a strong support mechanism and track record gives a level of security far greater than "going it alone" and ensures a strong foundation for growth throughout the next 20 years.
We are looking for an experienced, ambitious and value driven Optometrist to be responsible for leading from the front running clinics, setting and achieving benchmarks, following ethical prescribing polices and quality & compliance.
- Managing, developing and growing local business
- Overseeing commercial and ethical practice including full NHS and professional compliance
- Building the brand locally aiming to be "The best practice in the region"
- Working alongside the Operations Manager to deliver excellent customer service to our partners
- Managing team and recruitment of clinical staff
- Handling complaints through local business
This opportunity to invest in the business has been created in order to deliver the ownership vision. It is the chance for a local management team to acquire a significant share in the business and to be able to participate in the returns they generate. The key to this opportunity is to enable this team to do what they know best – providing high quality professional eye care and customer service in their local area. The local team will have total responsibility for the day to day running of the JVP, including the scheduling, the performance of eye tests, the administration, dispensing and delivery of glasses and any follow up repairs etc.
Visioncall is an equal opportunity employer. We embrace diversity and are committed to building a versatile environment for all employees.
Interested, we'd love to hear from you. We also offer the opportunity to join our clinical teams for a shadow day where you are given a real in-sight into what we do. Plus, we'll pay you £220 for the day.
