Job Description

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 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.

Wherever you are, we put our customers first with excellent service, welcoming stores and 'extra special' products - we work as a team to maximise sales and deliver a great shopping trip.

You'll be responsible for:

  • Completing pre-screening examinations

  • Booking appointments for customers

  • Dispensing spectacles and contact lenses as well as dealing with repairs and adjustments

  • 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.

Candidate Description

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

Are you looking for a flexible role in a fast-paced environment?
