Optometrist - Leven Role summary
We are looking for a driven and enthusiastic Optometrist, either experienced or newly qualified, to join our store at Specsavers in Leven. Working with the latest technology you will join a team focused on patient care and working with each other to help develop the wider team paying a package in the region of £65k dependent on experience.

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. We also recognise that our people are critical to our past and future success - so we do everything we can to make sure they get the experience and career they're looking for: from outstanding training and a personal development plan, to excellent benefits and unstinting support. The business has nearly 1,500 stores across 12 countries - and is still growing. We want you to be part of this outstanding success story.


The role would be suitable for Optometrists of various levels of experience as development is tailored specifically towards each individual. As an Optometrist you will make sure our patients get an expert eye examination, complete with clear information, sound advice and a friendly, professional approach. You'll work to the highest clinical standards, ensure we comply with NHS guidelines (and our own procedures), and help to build a loyal community customer base.

As a professional, you'll be an expert at putting people at ease and have the ability to talk customers through the eye examination process and explain their options in a clear, easy to understand way. What's more, you're organised and passionate about what you do - which means you keep accurate records and always have up-to-date knowledge of the latest developments in your field.

The store currently has 15 employees and 3 test rooms, with a shop fit due in the next few months and is happy to support any clinical development and or partner opportunities and currently runs Red Eye clinics and Uveitis clinics for IP.


Leven is a quiet seaside town which forms part of the Levenmouth area centrally located in Fife with close commutes to Dundee, St Andrews and Edinburgh. It also neighbours with Kirkcaldy and Glenrothes, both only 5 miles away, 10 minutes from the stunning area of St Andrews, 30 minutes from Edinburgh and 1 hour from Glasgow, with good public transport links. The area offers something for everyone including walking, golf, cycling, beautiful parks and countryside, photography, beaches etc.

A fantastic package in the region of £65k dependent on experience and clinical qualifications
Flexible working arrangements
Family Medical and Dental Package
Discounts on eyecare for you and friends and family
Death in Service
34 days holiday entitlement
