Position – Optometrist
Be part of a big-name brand that cares about the little things.
Join our team as an Optometrist at Peterborough Specsavers, where we recognise that our people are critical to our past and future success. Here, we do everything we can to make sure our team get the experience and career they’re looking for; from market-leading training and access to cutting-edge technology to a personal development plan built around you.
The Role in a Nutshell.
- Outstanding annual salary based on experience – we can talk more about this at interview
- Generous holiday allowance
- Private health and dental cover
- Pension contribution
- Exceptional clinical and professional development opportunities
We are passionate about your clinical development as an optical professional and we are committed to supporting you on extra courses and specialisms that interest you. Whatever your ambitions, from WOPEC qualifications and Independent Prescribing to Paediatric Accreditations and Enhanced Optical Services, we’ll do everything we can to help you be the best clinician you can be.
Our Optometrists are the face of our professional practice and usually 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 Specsavers Partnership Pathway available, we can guide you on your way to becoming a great leader. This – along with your clinical expertise – will stand you in good stead if you choose to become a store director yourself one day.
Our forward-thinking store continues to expand and provide the career development opportunities that come with such continued growth. We’re equipped with 12 test rooms, cutting-edge technology, up-to-date ophthalmic equipment and a team 100 members strong - including optical assistants trained in pre and post-screening, so everything is in place to let you focus on what you do best.
This position will take you into the vibrant and cultured city of Peterborough. With excellent transport connections, it’s not uncommon for people to commute from far and wide to be part of our colourful city. There’s something here for everyone, ranging from picturesque parks perfect for families to busy night-life. As an Optometrist in Peterborough, your client base comes with great variety, range, and plenty of familiar faces of course. In this large, fast-paced store there is never a dull moment.
What we’re looking for
You’ll need to be a qualified and GOC registered Optometrist with drive, passion and the ability to help this growing practice continue to build on its customer-focused culture. To be part of our team, you’ll need to provide that unique blend of customer care and professional excellence – which will make a big impact on the store’s overall success. 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 other people is essential. To summarise, we want someone who believes what we believe: in putting the patient first.
