Optometry jobs at Specsavers

Optometrist, Redruth, Cornwall


Specsavers in Redruth are looking for a forward thinking Optometrist. We recognise that our people are the key to our success. That’s why, at Specsavers in Redruth we do everything we can to ensure our team get the best from us too – from market-leading training, access to cutting-edge technology and a personal development plan built around you. Become our next Optometrist at Specsavers in Redruth– a highly successful store with a great reputation for staff progression and unparalleled support.


About us:
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.

What's on offer?
We understand that everyone’s needs are different, packages can be changed and for your passion and professionalism, we will be happy to build a package that suits you.

Here is an example of the package we are willing to offer:


  • Competitive basic salary of up to £60,000! (depending on experience)
  • A welcome bonus up to £10,000! (depending on experience)
  • Full-time and part-time options available
  • Rewarding bonus package
  • Medical & Dental Package
  • Generous 5 week holiday entitlement
  • Pension scheme
  • GOC & College of Optometrist fees covered
  • Annual parking permit paid for
  • Fantastic progression opportunity including support through clinical courses or Specsavers Joint Venture Pathway to become a director of your own practice


With a focus on flexibility, we are open to full-time and part-time applicants and will consider any working pattern to suit you. So, whether you need condensed hours or early finishes, we’re open to making it work – but let’s talk about that later. 

We are passionate about the clinical development of our team, and as our new Optometrist, we would support you with extra courses and specialisms that interest you. Whatever your ambitions, from WOPEC qualifications and independent prescribing to paediatric accreditations or enhanced optical services, we’ll do everything we can to help you be the best clinician you can be.  

Our Optometrists are an integral part of our store management team, so we’re keen to get you up to speed outside the test room too. With ILM courses, Pre-Reg supervision and the Specsavers Partnership scheme (Pathway) all available to explore. Along with your clinical expertise – this will stand you in good stead if you choose to become a store director yourself one day.

The Practice:

We are a medium practice, we currently have four test rooms, although we are looking to refit and grow our practice in the near future in line with our mission to be able to offer the very best, one-stop service to all our loyal customers. You will be joining our diverse, experienced and professional team and will benefit from working with 3 experienced Optometrists. 


Our location

Redruth is a small market town situated in the heart of Cornwall with close proximity to some of the best attractions that Cornwall has to offer including the beaches and art galleries of St Ives, moorland walks and everything you could need is a short drive away in the historic city of Truro.. 


Platinum employer
Our 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.

What we’re looking for
You’ll need to be a qualified and GOC registered Optometrist with the drive, passion and the willingness to build upon our customer-focused culture. As part of our team, you’ll need to be able to provide a unique blend of customer care and professional excellence. You’ll need to demonstrate good attention to detail along with a passion for the community. Teamwork also forms a big part of our culture, so the ability to work well with others is essential.
