We are currently recruiting for an experienced Optical Laboratory Technician / Optical Assistant role to join us at our store in Yate.


As an experienced Optical Laboratory Technician / Optical Assistant, you’ll be preparing customer prescriptions to the highest standards and using the latest computer-controlled equipment. It’s all about providing an excellent single vision glazing service that helps the store to maximise sales and profitability. One day you could be repairing spectacles, the next, you could be glazing and tinting single vision lenses. The important thing is that you’ll be learning all the time – building on your knowledge with the help of your expert colleagues. An eye for detail is a must. You should also be good with people and able to work as part of a team. You’ll be friendly and organised too, presenting a professional image to customers at all times. Above all, you’ll have previous experience as a Lab Technician, and be ready to learn more.


The store will be offering a great opportunity to multiskill and offer training to become an Optical Assistant, this will be one or two days a week. As an Optical Assistant, 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.


You’ve got the skills, experience and the drive. Now you’ve found the business that shares your ambition: welcome to Specsavers.  With our outstanding training and ever-growing business, there’s every opportunity to advance and excel.
