Job Details

Do you have a passion for bringing a brand to life? We’re looking for an assistant PR and social media manager to join our marketing team. As part of our brand team, you’ll be involved in increasing our brand awareness and consideration by bringing to life our Vision Express brand.


What can you expect from the role?


The beauty of this role is no two days are ever the same. From creating and implementing a social media plan, you’ll create content to use across our social and PR channels to support our ambitious marketing plans. You’ll also get involved in press requests and working with influencers to promote our brand.


We’ll look to you to spot trends and look for opportunities for us to grow our brand across our social channels. You’ll also be analysing the success of our campaigns, feeding back to the business on our successes and opportunities for the next campaign.


This opportunity will see you generating creative as well as copy for PR and social media campaigns. Working with colleagues across the business, you’ll also find opportunities for collaborating with colleagues across our stores, support centre and retail fulfilment hub.


At Vision Express we win together, so all our colleagues have a role to play in making our customers and colleagues feel special. It’s up to you to bring our brand to life and be involved in shaping our success. 

You can expect a busy but high achieving environment with a purpose, culture, and values to match, where everyone is working towards the same goal: creating joy in vision for our colleagues and customers.


About you


We’re looking for candidates with previous experience in social media and PR, ideally within a retail environment. You’ll have experience in photography and videography as well as editing suites including Adobe. We’d love to see your eye for detail in previous work you’ve created if possible!

Proficiency in a social media listening and scheduling tool also essential.


You’ll challenge the norm by continuously looking for areas of opportunities and with your customer centric mindset and you’ll be able to present these to stakeholders across the business.


We know you matter and that is why it is our commitment to make this a job you enjoy by recognising your achievements and encouraging you to be involved in shaping our success. Our game changing leaders will support your career with excellent training and development opportunities. There are limitless horizons, whether that be professionally or into management.


We’ve come a very long way since our first store opened nearly three decades ago. But our guiding principle remains the same. And that’s to provide an unparalleled level of customer service. A truly individual service, delivered in a professional yet welcoming environment where vision is taken seriously.

Through organic growth and acquisition there are now nearly 600 Vision Express stores across the UK, Jersey and the Republic of Ireland – from big city destinations to local high street stores. Following our acquisition of Tesco Opticians, you’ll now find us in Tesco stores too.

As a large and successful business, we’re able to offer a range of highly attractive benefits. These include, but are certainly not limited to:

  • Competitive pay, with a review each year
  • Up to 38 days’ paid leave (dependent on length of service)
  • Free eyewear and generous discounts for you, your family and friends
  • A ‘lifestyle benefits’ package, including health club membership and holiday offers
  • Flexible working and career breaks
  • Flexible benefits including health, wellbeing and lifestyle options

Candidates must be registered with the GOC to be considered for Optometrist and Dispensing Optician opportunities at Vision Express.
