The practice provides a professional, community based service covering the full range of eye care services. The existing team consists of experienced resident Optometrists and a number of experienced support staff including Dispensing Opticians.

You will work closely alongside the practice owners to continue their on-going success and further their reputation as the opticians of choice in the local area.

  • Testing room equipped with OCT and Retinal Cameras, with a nearby sister practice operating Optomap which you can refer patients to
  • The business has a very low staff turnover and so in each practice you will have a range of experienced Optoms, Dispensing Opticians and Optical Assistants by your side

Package and Benefits

  • Very Competitive salary between 40,000 - 60,000+ (depending on experience)
  • Weekend flexibility
