Job Details

Are you a project manager with a flair for IT projects? We’re looking for an IT project manager to support the delivery of our transformation plan with our business leads. In this exciting role you’ll have full ownership for the full project life cycle.


What can you expect from the role?

This opportunity will see you working with departments and stakeholders across the business to drive implementation through design, build and delivery. We’ll look to you to define the project scope, ensuring that the program is aligned and supporting our strategic objectives. As part of the full project life cycle we’ll look to you to develop training materials and programs for end users too.

The beauty of this role is no two days are ever the same. You’ll be managing the day-to-day operational aspects of projects, whilst actively identifying, managing, and mitigating any risks. Building relationships with key stakeholders, you’ll make sure input is received and communication is provided throughout the project.

We’ll also look to you to provide leadership for the project team through coaching and mentoring to make sure all project objectives and milestones are met. You’ll also provide insight to the business on the project milestones, deliverables, dependencies, risks and challenges.

At Vision Express we win together, so all our colleagues have a role to play in making our customers and colleagues feel special. It is up to you to bring our brand to life and be involved in shaping our success, by working closely with your team to build a high achieving environment that delivers a great customer experience.

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 are looking for candidates with previous experience within a similar role, ideally with IT projects. You’ll be able to demonstrate your ability to work in a dynamic, fast paced environment and your analytical and process driven approach to problem solving and process improvements.


Due to the nature of the role, we are looking for someone who has a collaborative style and demonstrates initiative and creativity in their approach. You’ll ideally have your Prince 2 or AGILE qualifications too.


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.
