Life at Leightons

At Leightons, we recognise the commitment and skill that go into becoming a Dispensing Optician, which is why, unlike other eye care practitioners, only our qualified Dispensing Opticians carry out the Dispense. We provide a higher quality experience for our people and, most importantly, for our patients. This premium service as a standard is something to which we attribute our success since our beginnings in 1928.

All Leightons branches have the autonomy to choose what is best for our customers. We stock a wide range of frames and accessories from top brands accordingly.

Our Dispensing Opticians deliver bespoke consultative support, catering to customers' prescription, style, and budgetary needs. The expert insight you'll provide will be just another reason why our customers come to us for their whole eye care journey.

It goes without saying that our Dispensing Opticians are the beating heart of our branches, ensuring quality patient care by guaranteeing that each store has adequate and correct stock, specific to their clientele.

Am I suitable?

This is an ideal position for a fully qualified Dispensing Optician with strong communication skills, searching for a brand that values quality over quantity, meaning our DOs need to be engaging, motivated, and able to work with customers on a consultative basis. Our one requirement is that you are registered with the GOC.

We are committed to promoting equal opportunities in employment and creating a workplace culture in which diversity and inclusion is valued and everyone is treated with dignity and respect. As part of our zero-tolerance approach to discrimination in any form, you and any job applicants will receive equal treatment regardless of age, disability, gender reassignment, marital or civil partner status, pregnancy or maternity, race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation (Protected Characteristics).
