Be part of a business that recognises and rewards talent...


As our Store Manager at our store in Middlesborough, you’ll make sure that the store’s clinic area runs like clockwork.

You’ll also be responsible for handling orders and dealing directly with customers in the contact centre clinic. 


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.


At Specsavers, we do everything in our power to help people like you get the career you want. Why? Because we know that our Clinic Managers are responsible for providing the kind of outstanding service.

You’ll create a ‘Customer First’ culture that recognises and rewards exemplary customer experiences and deals with customer concerns quickly and effectively. Customers will see us as ’their Optician and Audiologist’ and recommend us to family and friends. 

A Great Place to Work – You’ll develop a High Performing Team through Inspiring Leadership and a Performance Management Culture. You’ll own the store talent and succession plan, nurturing our best performers to fulfil their potential. You’ll recruit the very best talent and ensure they get a world-class induction into the business and a development plan to support their success.

Profitable Growth – You’ll drive customer demand and manage capacity through robust planning and forecasting. You’ll hero key products and deliver company-leading KPI performance. You’ll build local relationships to identify events that can drive demand and increase our market share.
