With the direction Specsavers in Ireland is moving in, there’s no better time to get on board.

We’re growing, and growing fast - but it’s not just our stores who are moving forward, it’s our people too.

With salaries on the rise and clinical development central to our development plans across the area, there is growing competition for Optometry positions at Specsavers.

So, why now?

Salaries: when we say competitive, we mean it. Salaries are on the rise across the region.

Clinical development: If you want to develop clinically, you’ll get that opportunity with Specsavers. It was only this weekend a Specsavers store won the Enhanced Optical Service Award at the Optician Awards. Combine that with our views on the future of Optometry and you’ll see Specsavers is standing at the very forefront of the profession.

A great place to work: There’s a real feel to our Irish stores. They’re focused on providing a place you’ll be proud to be working at, a place where you’ll have a great relationship with colleagues and a culture that will fit your personality and drive as an Optometrist.

Your future: There are many paths to success at Specsavers, but our Pathway to Partnership is without a doubt one of the most well-trodden. In fact, there are some great stories from our store directors in Ireland who have made the journey to Partnership and now run their own store, like Darren Connolly for example, who only last year became a director at our Navan store. It really makes you realise just how possible this is with Specsavers.

Your route to Specsavers:

Open to new opportunities: You might be based in Ireland currently but ready to take a new step in your career. With the development and growth of Specsavers across Ireland, it’s certainly worth the conversation – you might be surprised by what Specsavers can offer.

Heading back to Ireland: We’re talking to more and more Optometrists who previously left Ireland and are now heading back home. They’re not just heading home, they’re also benefitting from salaries and packages that weren’t available when they left.
