Optical Assistant - Taunton - Somerset Role summary

Location: Taunton, Somerset

Salary: Competitive basic dependent on experience

Working hours: Full time and part time available

We are currently recruiting for an individual with previous experience working within optics to join our store in Taunton as an Optical Assistant.

As an Optical Assistant you’ll make sure every customer gets a great experience when they come into our store. It means listening to what they want, providing exceptional clinical advice and dispensing lenses. You’ll work to NHS guidelines (as well as our own high standards), explain our current offers and promotions and make a positive impression, thanks to your polite and professional approach.

In return we’ll continue to develop and expand your knowledge of vision problems, eyecare and our products. With many of our current directors and managers beginning their career within Specsavers as an Optical Assistant, your career progression is endless.  

You’ll have the chance to develop clinically through our in-house ABDO recognised dispensing courses that could lead to Dispensing Optician, or alternatively there are opportunities to go into management and hearing. With a business growing both here in the UK and overseas, there has never been a better opportunity to join.

As a qualified Dispensing Optician registered with the GOC and good with people, you’ll be a natural when it comes to customer care. You’re friendly, polite and helpful – comfortable working as part of a team and able to answer questions and queries thanks to your excellent ophthalmic knowledge.

This store is an accredited Platinum Employer, which means you can expect an exceptional employee experience every single day you work here. The Platinum Employer Scheme is part of our drive to become a famous place to work. Stores with this accreditation have been verified on five key employer standards: Recruitment, Performance Management and Reward, Talent Management, Learning and Development and Employee Engagement

To secure this role you will need previous experience within an optical retailer and have a real passion for providing fantastic customer care. This vacancy will close once we have filled all available assessment places. We therefore highly recommend early applications.
