Job Details

We are currently working with a reputable practice in the Okehampton area, that are looking to add an Optometrist to their team on a full or part-time basis, helping them to continue their on-going success.

A fantastic opportunity has become available, to join an experienced and tenured team in a practice with a phenomenal reputation, where it is known as the opticians of choice in the area.

This role offers a lucrative salary of up to 65,000 alongside a generous 10,000 welcome bonus and even a relocation bonus too!

The practice is open to taking on a full or part time Optometrist, working anywhere from 2-5 days a week. They offer flexible general hours of work and up a one hour lunch break. The expectation is that two in four Saturday will be covered, however an attractive factor of this opportunity, is that Sunday work will never be required, due to the practice being closed.

The practice itself is highly-established and has close links with the community it serves. This means they are regularly fully booked and receive regular referrals furthering the organic growth of the practice.

Additionally the practice continually invests in the latest equipment, with test rooms boasting OCT's, phoropters, Humphries Fields Machines, alongside a fully paperless system.

This is a wonderful chance to join a supportive team and therefore applications are welcome from those nearing their final OSCE's, newly qualified individuals and experienced Optometrists. With numerous options for both clinical and career progression, this is an excellent prospect.


Should you be looking to relocate to fill this role, there is a generous relocation bonus on offer, alongside the already sizeable welcome bonus.

Recently placed within the 'Top Ten Places to Live in Devon', Okehampton is a great location with a reasonably priced property market and plenty of fun things to do, such as exploring the local national park, visiting the beach and more!

Should you be interested in finding out more about this remarkable opportunity, do not hesitate to get in contact with us as soon as you can, as it is unlikely that this fantastic opportunity will be around for long.
