Optometrist - Burgess Hill, West Sussex

Role summary

Specsavers has been going from strength to strength, ever since the business started back in 1984. We strive for the highest clinical standards – and believe that the customer should be at the heart of everything we do. We also recognise that our people are critical to our past and future success – so we do everything we can to make sure they get the experience and career they’re looking for: from outstanding training and a personal development plan, to excellent benefits and unstinting support. The business has nearly 1,500 stores across 12 countries – and is still growing. We want you to be part of this outstanding success story.

2016 is the year of growth for us here at Specsavers in Burgess Hill, and as a result we have recently relocated to a larger store. We are looking for an Optometrist to join our forward-thinking team and really contribute to our expansion in becoming a large store.

With a team of 20 staff you’ll have the support in place to pre-screen the patients and advise on the best products, you will therefore be able to focus on doing what you do best - conducting a test for the patient. With two brand new test rooms and auto refractor equipment this is the perfect set up for you to really go far in your optical career!

On offer is the following package:

  • A strong package 
  • Good bonus scheme
  • Medical & Dental package
  • Death in Service
  • Pension
  • Generous 5 week holiday entitlement
  • GOC fees covered

In addition to the above package, and with the expansion of our store, you’ll now have the opportunity to supervise student optometrists during their pre-reg year. What’s more, we’ll also support your journey to one day becoming a Specsavers director using our Joint Venture Pathway, so where better to progress your career? With the recent relocation and the store’s push on expanding this is a very exciting time to join our team!

Based in one of the fastest growing towns in West Sussex our store is based just a 2-3 minute walk from the train station. We’re easily accessible by road too so getting to us is very straight forward. The right person for this position will be a confident, outgoing person with a strong worth ethic and willingness to succeed. You will be passionate about your job and enjoy a busy, sometimes fast-paced environment.

If you’re ready for a new challenge and looking for a role with real progression opportunities – we’d like to hear from you.
