The skills and experience that you need will vary according to the role you apply for. But there are certain qualities that we look for in every individual who joins Specsavers.

Among these qualities are a drive to deliver outstanding customer service and the ability to work well as part of a team. A natural curiosity is also important. After all, if you’re going to make a difference to our business, you’ve got to be genuinely interested in how that business works.
