Specsavers has been going from strength to strength, ever since the business started back in 1984. We strive for the highest clinical standards – and believe that the customer should be at the heart of everything we do. We also recognise that our people are critical to our past and future success – so we do everything we can to make sure they get the experience and career they’re looking for: from outstanding training and a personal development plan, to excellent benefits and generous support. The business has nearly 1,500 stores across 12 countries – and is still growing. We want you to be part of this outstanding success story.

As an optical assistant, you’ll discover why at Specsavers, we pride ourselves on providing the foundation for exciting, long-term careers – a home where your efforts will be truly valued and where you’ll be given the opportunity to thrive. With a business that’s constantly expanding, both in the UK and abroad, the opportunities to expand your knowledge base and develop a career have never looked better.

 

You’ll make sure every customer gets a great experience when they come into our store. It means listening to what they want, explaining our offers and products, and dispensing single vision, bifocal and varifocal lenses. You’ll work to NHS guidelines (as well as our own high standards), give good, clear advice and make a positive impression, thanks to your polite and professional approach. 

 

We’ll continue to develop and expand your knowledge of vision problems, eyecare and our products.

Every great team needs great leadership and at Fox Valley you’ll be led by directors with fantastic success stories with Specsavers! Hitesh our retail partner, graduated in 2006 and has a wealth of Specsavers experience working his way up into management before completing ILM 3 and our Pathway program in 2018. Humma is our new ophthalmic director and graduated in 2011. She joined Specsavers in 2012 and has been with us ever since! She’s contributed to the success of our stores and as such has won multiple awards! She also completed ILM 3 and completed our Pathway program in 2018. 

 

To secure this role you will need previous experience as either an optical assistant or dispensing assistant and have a real passion for providing fantastic customer care.

Here at Specsavers you’ll be in the best hands to succeed in your career with directors that have first-hand knowledge of the progression paths you can follow!
