Job Details

Are you looking for a retail apprenticeship like no other? We are currently looking for an apprentice to join us in store on a 13-month programme where you will graduate with a level 2 in Optical Retail. As one of our apprentices we will give you all the training and support you need.

 

What can you expect from the role?

 

The role of an optical apprentice offers more responsibility and involvement than your normal retail apprenticeship. At Vision Express we win together, so all our colleagues have a role to play in making our customers feel special, from a warm welcome, through to help with selecting the right products for their needs.

 

The beauty of this role is that no two days are ever the same. With the support of your store manager and our in-house apprenticeship team we will give you all the tools you need to support your development throughout the program. You will get involved in bringing our brand to life, learning how select the right products for our customer's needs and providing them with a tailored experience.   


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

 

If you love to learn and are looking to build a career, you will have every opportunity to develop plus all the support you need, whatever your ambitions.

 

About you

 

To join our apprenticeship programme, you will need:

  • To be at least 16 years of age
  • To not be in full or part-time education
  • To ideally have Maths of English GCSEs (or equivalent) at Grade C/4 or above, but don’t worry as we can support you in achieving a Functional Skills qualification in one or both these key subjects
  • Due to the nature of the programme, if you have previous optical experience, this role wouldn’t be suitable for you. However, please do check our retail optical assistant opportunities if this is the case!

     

    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 to suit your careers goals whether that be developing into a management role or progressing into professional optometry.

    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
