Are you passionate about creating joy for your colleagues and customers? We are looking for an experienced store manager to join our retail team. Previous optical experience isn’t required for this role, we can give you all the support to develop a career with us. The focus here is to create joy in vision for our colleagues and customers, through building an environment that provides an expert and trusted eyecare experience.

 

What can you expect from the role?

 

The role of a store manager designate involves a six-month training and development program to learn all about us. After this you will be placed in your own store to lead and develop your team. Here we will look to you to create an environment where we win together, where all our colleagues have a role to play in making our customers feel special. If you like the buzz of the shop floor, creating a unique customer experience and developing a team, this role will suit you.

 

The beauty of this role is that no two days are ever the same. You will spend your first six months in stores of different sizes and work with your mentors to learn all about us. By bringing our brand to life and working closely with your colleagues, you will build a high achieving environment that delivers an experience that creates joy in vision. You will also be involved in shaping our success through learning how we analyse and interpret your P&L and KPIs to determine where the areas of opportunities lie.


You can expect a busy environment where everyone is working towards the same goal and where our culture and values are at the heart of everything we do.

Company

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.
