'Working in Specsavers to me, means "Making A Difference" to anyone who needs correction or treatment to their vision or their hearing - whether that means in a store, a clinic or in their home.

You don't have to be just in a store to do that because, we all contribute to the wellbeing of our customers - we are all "one team".  To me, every day is different, interesting, challenging and fun - we work hard together but we know how to celebrate our successes as well.

So why not "Make A Difference" and be M.A.D. in our family company.'
