A decision to attend a careers fair at the Aylesbury Vale Academy proved to be hugely successful for Specsavers. The most popular stand by a good margin, pupils flocked to chat with the three team members. Store director, Rachael King was joined by graduate optometrist, Mohamed Gulamhusein and trainee audiologist, Anisah Safir.
Students were able to try on goggles that simulated different eye conditions as well as ask any questions they might have about getting into optics as a career.
A great career choice
‘We had a great day and it seemed to spark a lot of interest which was fantastic,’ said Rachael. ‘Optics might not be something which is front of mind when students are thinking about their future career, but hopefully, we were able to get them thinking about it as a viable option.’
