About the Role

To be employed in this role you must be over the age of 18 and pass an enhanced safeguarding check.

Our stores operate 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, with that brings a wide variety of shift patterns – if you're looking for flexible working to fit around your lifestyle, then look no further! We'll work with you on your shifts, but late and weekend working is a requirement of the role and we may need to be flexible with your work pattern.

Our in-store Opticians are hugely popular with our customers and they'll expect the same warmth and friendliness they get everywhere else in the store – as well as being confident and relaxed about discussing personal ocular health issues, quickly resolving customer problems and taking customers to the right products.

You will be responsible for preparing patients for their eye examination and explaining what each stage of the eye test involves, completing pre-screening examinations and booking appointments for customers. You will also be dispensing spectacles and contact lenses as well as dealing with repairs and adjustments while ensuring stock has been received by the supplier.

We'll help you to become a star colleague from learning how to dispense glasses and contact lenses, looking after repairs, adjustments and glasses verification to teaching contact lens insertion and removals – with our great training and support, we'll help you keep getting better and better.

About You

You'll be naturally friendly, highly organised and want to get stuck in, working with your team to deliver great results. You have good computer skills, attention to detail and you communicate well with customers. You also love problem solving and are confident working with numbers. You're passionate about helping people and care about giving customers a great healthcare experience, helping them find what they need and having a chat along the way.
