Job Details

An exceptionally rare opportunity is now available for an Optometrist to join a leading independent practice in a Monday-Friday only role based in Tottenham.

Standard eye exams are 30 minutes long where the practice stocks a wide range of high-end and designer frames/lenses, where patient satisfaction is the number one priority over sales and KPI's.

Additionally the practice has just had a refit, and has the latest technology in the testing room including OCT & Phoropters.

You will work alongside an experienced and tenured team including qualified Dispensing Opticians, where the practice runs double clinics every day so you will be alongside another Optometrist.

Moreover the practice has extremely low staff turnover and we fully expect whoever takes this role to be working at the practice for many years to come.

The package is all negotiable with a basic salary up to circa 65000+, with an exceptional holiday allowance of 42 days holiday inclusive of bank holiday, which is 14 days extra compared to the statutory requirement.

A key highlight is that this role is midweek only, working Monday-Friday only, which in a practice based environment is extremely rare.

If you're looking to work in a leading independent practice with no weekend work in a highly rewarding role, this is an exceptional option to consider and would recommend early enquiry to avoid disappointment while still available.

  • Monday-Friday only with general working hours of 9:30am-6pm
  • Standard testing times of 30 minutes

  • Support by a highly-qualified and experienced team including qualified Dispensing Opticians
  • Working alongside another Optometrist at all times in a double testing practice
  • Practice offers wider clinical services including MECS, however this is not essential for you to have this qualification

Package and Benefits

  • Very competitive salary- Up to 65,000+ (Depending on experience)
  • No weekends - Monday-Friday only role
  • Exceptional holiday allowance of 42 days holiday including bank holidays
  • Closed Bank holidays
  • Family run where you will be working directly with the owners
  • Supported by qualified Dispensing Opticians in a low staff turnover practice

Key Skills, Qualifications and Client Requirements
