A bit about us…
Leightons is a retail opticians and audiology business, founded in 1928. We are proudly independent, family-owned and family run and believe our people are the key to success and longevity. Leightons has grown to have 34 stores, all special and unique – 24 fully owned, 7 franchised, 2 co-owned and 1 business operating under its own name.
Core responsibilities for the OHA’s can be split into the Three C’s;
Our OHA’s are the first person to greet our customers as they enter our store and set the tone for their visit. It is imperative that the OHA has excellent customer service skills with an ability to interact with a diverse of personalities and backgrounds, adapting these skills to a wide range of scenarios.
OHA’s aren’t restricted to front of house duties. We believe it’s imperative for our OHA’s to become fully immersed within the world of optics, meaning that OHA’s take full charge of our ‘pre-screening’ process, focused on performing retinal imaging and OCT examinations.
We stock a wide range of frames and accessories, allowing us to ensure our customers are free to browse the best frames in the market until they locate exactly what they want. As an OHA, you may have to provide consultative advice to these customers regarding the variations between different frames, advising on price, frame composition and brand information.
