Typical Optical roles include:

Optometrist Manager

Our Optometrist Managers focus on managing and coaching their team, as well as providing great patient care and honest advice. This makes it a really dynamic, varied and rewarding role.


Optometrists at Asda focus on providing great patient care and honest advice. We focus on giving them the time and equipment to make that as easy as possible.

Contact Lens Optician

You’ll bring your outstanding knowledge and communication skills to showcase to our patients the benefits of using contact lenses when considering their eye correction needs.


Reimagine Retail in Optical

No two days in optical is the same as each patient brings their own challenges and personality. Asda is the best kept secret in the optical world because of our industry leading pricing. We don’t charge any extra for thinner lenses or varifocals if a patient’s prescription requires this.

Many customers also like the fact that they can come in store, hand in their prescription to the pharmacy, have their eyes checked and do some shopping all at the same time. We fit that one stop shop idea, and have big plans for future growth


The heart of the community

Just one example is our commitment to creating more supportive shopping experiences for customers with disabilities. We already provide accessible service desks, hearing loops for customers who may be hard of hearing and help our staff communicate with blind customers using Braille guns. But we believe there’s even more we can do.

But as well as providing the opportunity to build a highly rewarding role in the heart of the community, we also offer a wide range of benefits including paying your GOC fees and professional indemnity insurance.

If you’re not quite ready to settle down in an Asda store, or there’s nothing available just yet, you can always get a taste of life here by registering as a Locum
