With a business like Specsavers, the future always looks interesting for Dispensing Opticians. After all, we’re the UK’s number one provider of professional eyecare – and we’re still growing. That means your career has the chance to develop and room to progress. Join us now and who knows how far you could go?

 

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.

As a Dispensing Optician in Dundee, you’ll use your skills to give customers an ophthalmic dispensing service of the highest clinical standards. You’ll be a role model for more junior staff, working your magic with customers, liaising with the optical, retail and lab teams, and giving clear, sound advice. Your efforts will help to drive overall store sales as well as customer loyalty – which will make you a key member of the team. Our store is a large store across three floors, with 6 dispensing opticians and 8 consulting rooms. There is a large support of Contact Lens Opticians and room for progression.  Our store was established in 1993 and we still have some of our original team! who have been here for 26 years.

 

As a qualified Dispensing Optician registered with the GOC and good with people, you’ll be a natural when it comes to customer care.
