Audiology Partner - Colchester Hearcare, Essex

Specsavers in Colchester is looking for an ambitious and commercially minded Audiologist to become their next Audiology Director and Store Partner.

We want someone who is passionate about both transforming hear care and driving awareness of hearcare in their community; to help you to succeed, you'll receive professional development and ongoing support from existing and experienced Optometry & Retail Partners.

At Specsavers in Colchester you will have the opportunity to provide a first-class experience to every patient in addition to receiving an excellent package and the opportunity to build an investment for your future as an Audiology Partner.

Who are we looking for?

Alongside being a qualified HAD or Audiologist, you'll need to share the store's ethos. They're looking for someone who wants to grow and develop the team, offer exceptional customer care and improve patient outcomes. You'll be a practitioner who prides themselves on their clinical judgment, isn't afraid of a hands-on approach, and someone who is keen to get involved and build a rapport with their team. In summary, you'll be a highly skilled Audiology professional willing and able to help drive the practice forward.

About the store

Situated just off the main high street, Specsavers in Colchester has been in situ for 30 years and is a very established part of the community there.

Colchester is a large and busy store; it boasts 14 rooms in total; 12 optical and 2 dedicated Hearcare rooms with sound proofed booths. The audiology rooms are equipped with the latest clinical technology including Otoscopes and Pure Tone Audiometry (PTA) tests meaning you will have everything you need to perform hearing tests to the highest possible standards. The audiology business sees a good mix of both Private and NHS customers.

A team of 60 staff work in this large store, of which there is a team of 4 dedicated audiology professionals. The existing Partners are both really passionate about the clinical development of the team, and as the new Audiology Director you would have the scope to advise on training requirements, introduce new specialisms and build/shape the team further as required.

As the new Audiology partner for this stand alone Audiology Hub, you would be joining 5 experienced partners: Colin Hope, Nicholas Hagan, Louise Stanton; Kiran Lal and Rebecca Longobardi who are all experienced optics and retail professions.

The Essentials:
  • Run your own Audiology business with the support of a global brand
  • A very competitive base salary - and that's before dividends
  • Relocation support if your moving
  • 50% of business profits on top of your salary - meaning huge earning potential
  • The experience and knowledge of existing Specsavers Partners who are ready to help you with growing your Audiology business
  • A full induction to Specsavers Partnership and bespoke development opportunities along the way for you and your team
  • The ongoing assistance of Specsavers support functions ensuring everything is in place to allow you to focus on what you do best - changing the lives of your patients

This is a huge opportunity for an ambitious Audiologist who is ready to turn their passion for providing Audiology services into a profitable business.

Life as an Audiology business owner:

Start your life as an Audiology business owner with the security of a competitive salary combined with 100% of your share in the profits. Not only does this unique opportunity have phenomenal earning potential - it's low risk, high reward.

At Specsavers, the patient always comes first. Our business ownership model allows you to use your expertise and experience to give the gift of hearing back to people who need it most, all whilst growing a business and building an asset for your (and your family's) future.

First and foremost, you'll still be a clinician dedicated to changing the lives of your patients - but now, as a business owner, you'll also be changing the lives of your very own team. At the pinnacle of your Audiology career you'll be in a position to support the future of the profession and have a real feeling of pride every morning when you walk into your own business.

Why Specsavers?

At Specsavers, we are changing perceptions of Audiology; making it more accessible to the public and increasing awareness of hearing loss, ear conditions and diseases such as impacted earwax, Tinnitus and Meniere's Disease. We are passionate about de-stigmatising hearing loss by ensuring ease of access to our service for both NHS and private customers.

Our Specsavers Audiology Partners lead from the front, driving the highest standards of clinical care as we embrace new technology and take on new challenges. Developments in hearing are transforming lives and we're proud to bring our customers the best products and even better prices.

With Specsavers, you can continue to do the job you love whilst enjoying the flexibility and autonomy of running your own business. Our goal is to bring excellence in hearing healthcare to the high street, and this is your opportunity to join us on that journey.

Do what you do best - and we'll handle the rest:

As a Joint Venture Partner of our Specsavers store in Colchester, you'll benefit first hand from your own success and the growth of your store.

You'll have the best of both worlds - the freedom to look after your customers, make those critical day-to-day decisions and run your own store, with the support of Specsavers behind you - a renowned and constantly-expanding brand with over 1,900 retail outlets.

Our UK support office team is over 1,800 people strong and will be with you every step of the way, helping you to grow your business, attract new customers and care for patients referred by the NHS. Everything from payroll and HR advice to marketing and IT will be delivered by our support office teams, leaving you to focus on what you do best.

What's next?

It's an exciting opportunity with plenty to think about, so we'll be here to explain everything when you're ready - from the Specsavers Partnership model and how it all works, to the support available and the huge financial potential.
