Much more than you imagine

Optical Manager

Your Role

Great value, great clinical care and great customer service are all part of the package with Asda Opticians. Our unique fixed price approach means there's no up-selling here. Single vision glasses are the same price as varifocals, and there are no top-up costs for anti-scratch or thinner lenses either, so we don't have to compromise a customer solution because of what someone can afford.

It's not just the great product offer that makes Asda such a great place to be, though. We go a long way to create a smooth operation that means the customer gets the best possible service.

Our Optical Managers are key to our success here, making sure the team has everything in place that they need to deliver. And, as we're always looking to extend our range of clinical services, that makes this role all the more vital and exciting.

About You

Making sure our quality products are matched by an exceptional customer experience, as an Optical Manager you'll be responsible for overseeing the entire operation. Working in close partnership with an Optometrist, you'll coach and develop your team, set the pace of the patient schedule and work with the wider Asda team to generate customer awareness and drive your department forward.

This role may suit you if you are an ambitious Dispensing Optician looking for the next step in your career, and believe you have the organisation and people skills to lead our team.

You'll be:

  • A fully qualified dispensing optician registered with the GOC
  • On track to meet the statutory points requirement for CET

The Rewards

You will also get an excellent benefits package including:

  • Discretionary company bonus
  • Company pension up to 7% matched
  • 10% colleague discount, free parking and many additional rewards.
  • your professional indemnity insurance
  • GOC fees paid
  • CET package
  • Flexible working patterns in accordance with 7 day opening


Please note: Each shift has an unpaid compulsory meal break.
