Optometry Jobs at Specsavers

Optometrist: Port Talbot, South West Wales



Come and join our accomplished team as an Optometrist at Specsavers Port Talbot, where we are at the height of customer care. Join us and help work to ensure every single one of our customers receives the very best patient experience. Were community-focused and we need someone ready to use their passion, skills and experience to build on our ever-growing and loyal customer base.


Our Optoms are usually an integral part of our store management team, so were keen to get you up to speed with management responsibilities. With ILM courses, pre-reg supervision 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 if you choose to become a store director yourself one day.


Were dedicated to our customers, but what really makes this role stand out is that we offer a workplace with a difference - where people grow both personally and professionally.

Basic salary up to 65,000 (depending on experience)

Pre-Reg supervision can be arranged if that is a passion of yours

Holiday allowance of 33 days per year

Pension contribution

Outstanding clinical and professional development opportunities

Relocation assistance can be offered if you are moving to the area

We are passionate about the clinical development of our team, and as our new Optometrist, we want to support you with extra courses and specialisms that interest you. Whatever your ambitions, from WOPEC qualifications and independent prescribing to paediatric accreditations or enhanced optical services, well do everything we can to help you be the best clinician you can be.


What were looking for

You'll need to be a qualified and GOC registered Optometrist with the drive, passion and the willingness to build upon our customer-focused culture. As part of our team, youll need to be able to provide a unique blend of customer care and professional excellence. Youll need to demonstrate good attention to detail along with a passion for the community. Teamwork also forms a big part of our culture, so the ability to work well with others is essential.



It may be best known for its giant smoking steelworks but Port Talbot proved to be Britain's property hot spot in 2021, figures show. The industrial town saw average house prices rise by 7.5% during 2019 - almost five times the national average.

Cheap seafront houses and removing the Severn bridge tolls helped fuel the rise, according to local estate agents.


There is a direct train station from Port Talbot to London's Paddington Station which takes a little over 2 1/2 hours and less than 20 minutes in to Swansea.
