I have just taken on a vacancy for an experienced Optical Assistant who would work in a small team in a well-appointed practice within a small group that has been established for over 100 years.
The practice itself is well equipped and many of the practices have high-tech Smart Mirrors which will allow you to compare how you look in up to four frames simultaneously!
They have a huge choice of frames with up to 1000 different styles in some branches and their independent status means they have frames and lenses available from many different manufacturers all over the world.
Responsibilities of the Optical Assistant
This a front-of-house retail sales position. You will be meeting and greeting customers coming into the store, booking appointments, helping customers to choose the best frame for their needs, dispensing spectacles and ultimately making sales.
You will be on hand to help with initial clinical tests and offer advice to customers on how to care for and use their contact lenses.
Additional admin reception and merchandising will also be a part of the role.
Requirements of the Optical Assistant
The right candidate for this position will have full dispensing knowledge as well as having excellent customer service.
You will be a hardworking and dynamic individual who is able to make sales while always delivering the highest levels of customer care.
You will have clear personal career goals that this company can help you to achieve and you will be willing to work for them.
They strive for continuous improvement in all aspects of work and the company’s employees regularly attend clinical education and training seminars for which the company recently achieved the prestigious Investors in People award.
The role involves a large amount of admin work combined with dispensing duties and as such the client required good levels of English grammar.
*You must be available to work Saturday.
Compensation for the Optical Assistant
On offer is a starting salary of £18,000 – £19,000 basic + additional training and development opportunities.
