** Newly Qualified Optometrist **  Washington Specsavers is going through radical change; the store is now under new partnership, and with that comes team growth as well as an injection of investment to modernise the store, both aesthetically and technologically.    Here at Washington Specsavers, we are seeking a newly qualified Optometrist to join our team and be a part of this exciting store transformation.


Whats on offer?  

  • £45,000 +
  • Buy out fees paid  
  • Salary increase to £60,000 after 12 months (subject to performance)
  • Opportunity of doing Pathway to Joint Venture Partnership
  •  A highly rewarding performance-based bonus scheme
  •  Health and dental cover
  •  Pension contribution
  •  Support with CET
  •  Exceptional clinical and professional development opportunities
  • Option to work in second store within Sainsburys Washington


Our Optometrists are the face of our professional practice, so we’re keen to get you up to speed outside the test room too. With training/course support, 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 especially if your chosen career path is to become a store director.  


We’re equipped with 3 test rooms and 1 lens room with, soon to be cutting-edge technology, so everything will be in place to let you focus on what you do best. 


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. Teamwork also forms a big part of our culture, so the ability to work well with other people is essential.


Platinum Employer

Our store is an accredited Platinum Employer – this means you can expect an exceptional employee experience every single day you work here. The Platinum Employer Scheme is part of the Specsavers drive to become a famous place to work. Stores with this accreditation have been verified on five key employer standards: Recruitment, Performance Management and Reward, Talent Management, Learning and Development and Employee Engagement.
