About the store

Specsavers in Andover opened in 1991 and sits in a central position on the main pedestrianised high street, near the entrance to the Chantry Shopping Centre.  The store went through a full refit last year so now boasts 4 test rooms including 1 dual room also used for hearcare services, all fully equipped with the latest clinical technology, including OCT. The store also offers enhanced clinical services such as post cataract checks and audiology services.


A team of 19 dedicated colleagues call this store home. The existing Partner is really passionate about the clinical development of the team, and as the new Retail Director you would have the scope to advise on training requirements and build the team further as required.


Store Location

Andover is a pretty market town in the beautiful Test Valley. There’s something for everyone in Andover, from independent and high street stores, cafés and restaurants to museums and Arts centres.  Steeped in history, Andover is home to beautiful 18th century buildings, Saxon walk ways and The Andover Time Ring which features key historical events from the town’s past along the high street.


There are excellent transport links with a train station 15 minutes’ walk from the store where a train to Winchester takes less than 40 minutes. The A303 runs close to the town and the A34 is only 15 minutes by car. Both the M3 to the east and the M4 to the north of Andover are around 20 miles from the store.


Requirements of the role

Alongside being an existing retailer with a strong and proven background within optics, you will also have the drive, passion and willingness to ensure a customer-focused team and role model high standards to continue the success of this store. As the new Retail Partner, you will be able to provide a unique blend of customer care and professional excellence. You’ll be able to build a rapport with the new teams, demonstrate excellent attention to detail and possess an ability to build strong relationships within the local community.


About Joint Venture Partnership

Joint venture partnership is the secret to our success here at Specsavers, with every store locally owned and led by its directors. Owning, leading, and growing your very own business is considered by many to be the pinnacle of your career. We believe that professional optics should be led by retailers just like you – this is your chance to become the leader you were born to be.
