Job Details

Are you passionate about providing expert eyecare and delivering a genuine caring service?  Our Pre-registration Optometrist development programme provides unrivalled training and support to help you become a successful Optometrist.

What can you expect from the role?

At Vision Express we win together, so all our colleagues have a role to play in making our customers feel special. You will spend most of your day getting to know your customers, learning how to deliver a personalised and trusted eye test experience, and helping them get the right eyecare solutions for their needs.  It is up to you to bring our brand to life in every customer interaction you have.

You can expect a busy environment, with a diverse patient base, where everyone is working towards the same goal and where our culture and values are at the heart of everything we do. Our Pre-reg development programme offers supportive supervisors and a professional development tutor alongside several training courses including a secondment to an eye hospital and a mock OSCE course.

About you

To join our Pre-registration development programme, you will need to be studying towards a degree in optometry and registered as a student with the GOC.

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 once you qualify as an Optometrist whether that be professionally, into management or investing in a partnership with us.


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.
