Join our team as an Optical Assistant, and you’ll discover why at Specsavers, we pride ourselves on providing the foundation for exciting, long-term careers – a home where your previous optical expertise will be truly valued and where you’ll be given the opportunity to thrive.

 

Optical Assistant roles at Specsavers are now even more rewarding. Join us and complete a nationally recognised qualification equivalent to a Level 3 BTEC to accelerate your optical career.  The course improves knowledge and understanding of dispensing procedures and provides a stepping stone to the roles of DO, CLO and beyond! 

 

With a business that’s constantly expanding, both in the UK and abroad, the opportunities to expand your knowledge base and develop a career have never looked better. 

 

As an Optical Assistant, you’ll make sure every customer gets a great experience when they come into our store. It means listening to what they want, explaining our offers and products, and dispensing single vision, bifocal and varifocal lenses. You’ll work to NHS guidelines (as well as our own high standards), give good, clear advice and make a positive impression, thanks to your polite and professional approach. 

To secure this role you will need previous experience as either an optical assistant or dispensing assistant and have a real passion for providing fantastic customer care.

We’ll continue to develop and expand your knowledge of vision problems, eyecare and our products. You’ve already demonstrated that you’re a natural when it comes to customer care, you’re articulate, good with people with an organised approach and always happy to help, so you’ll fit right in as a valuable member of our friendly store team, joining a business that’s going places.
