Optometrist - Cambridge

Role summary

Due to continued growth in our two practices we are looking for a motivated and passionate Optometrist to join our talented team in Cambridge Specsavers.

The Role

Essentially, we want our Optometrists to deliver excellent eye care and advice that meets the individual needs of our patients. To help them achieve this our practices are equipped with the latest equipment, including an OCT, so that they can provide the very best clinical care. Our wider teams include DO’s and CLO’s so that the Optometrists can focus on doing what they do best.

Our Stores

We have two large stores in the centre of the beautiful City of Cambridge. Our diverse and well-trained shop floor teams give great support and are focussed on providing great customer service and products that meet the needs of customers. As we have five consulting rooms in each store so you will enjoy the benefits of working as part of a team of Optometrists. We offer a number of enhanced optical services such as MECS, glaucoma refinement, diabetic screening, DVLA screening and direct cataract referral. We also have a strong tradition of training students and have a good relationship with Anglia Ruskin University, the LOC and the local hospitals.


Working in a large business such as ours offers lots of opportunities for development and progression. For example, we have sponsored Optometrists in achieving higher qualifications such as the professional certificate in glaucoma. For those who would potentially like their own business one day we also have a strong track record of supporting colleagues through the Pathway Programme.


The Package
We are able to build a bespoke package to suit how you work and your lifestyle including the following:

  •      A fantastic salary package
  •      GOC fee paid
  •      Flexible working arrangements
  •      Medical and dental package
  •      Discounts on eyecare for you, friends and family 
  •      CET provision  
  •      Parking available if required 
  •      Generous holiday entitlement 
  •      Tailored progression plan in place suited to your career goals
