Join our team in Rugby and let us take your optical career to the next level!
We are now looking for a dedicated, experienced and customer focused Optical Assistant to join this expanding team. You will be part of a hardworking and driven team and your involvement will be a key driving force that will be visible to customers and colleagues alike.


Specsavers began more than 35 years ago with the vision of two optometrists, Doug and Mary Perkins, who set out to provide best-value eyecare to everybody. Their passion for optometry has led Specsavers to become the largest privately-owned optical group in the world, delivering high-quality, affordable optical and hearing care in 10 countries. And it continues to shape the lives and experience of thousands of colleagues who are developing their careers with us across the globe. We are proud of how far we’ve come as a business, now we want to see you grow with us too.

Your role as an Optical Assistant:


As an optical assistant you will make sure every customer gets a fantastic experience in store from start to finish. You will be confident providing advice, explaining offers and listening to each customer’s needs. You will have a proven track record of working within retail in a fast-paced environment and enjoy working with others.
Every day will be full and varied and you will be confident handling a variety of situations from dispensing Single Vision, Bifocal and Varifocal lenses, contact lens teaching and advising along with administration duties such as booking appointments and completing NHS forms. You will be confident speaking to customers and enjoy working in a busy team setting.
Please note – to be considered for this role you must have previous optical experience.


Our Rugby store is an accredited Platinum Employer – this means you can expect an exceptional employee experience every single day you work here. The Platinum Employer Scheme is part of the Specsavers drive to become a famous place to work. Stores with this accreditation have been verified on five key employer standards: Recruitment, Performance Management and Reward, Talent Management, Learning and Development and Employee Engagement.
