We are currently recruiting for an individual with previous experience working within optics to join our Specsavers East Kilbride as an Optical Assistant.


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, providing exceptional clinical advice and dispensing lenses. You’ll work to NHS guidelines (as well as our own high standards), explain our current offers and promotions and make a positive impression, thanks to your polite and professional approach.


In return we’ll continue to develop and expand your knowledge of vision problems, eyecare and our products. With many of our current directors and managers beginning their career within Specsavers as an Optical Assistant, your career progression is endless. 


You’ll have the chance to develop clinically through our in-house ABDO recognised dispensing courses that could lead to Dispensing Optician, or alternatively there are opportunities to go into management and hearing. With a business growing both here in the UK and overseas, there has never been a better opportunity to join.


To secure this role you will need previous experience within an optical retailer and have a real passion for providing fantastic customer care. This vacancy will close once we have filled all available places. We therefore highly recommend early applications.
