Dispensing optician and store supervisor Jessica Sharp is a familiar face at Specsavers in Straiton Sainsbury’s.

The 26-year-old from Edinburgh has worked with Specsavers for a decade, first joining the team on a work experience placement in Musselburgh.

From there, she progressed to the role of optical assistant and went on to complete her studies as a dispensing optician, qualifying in 2016.

She is a specialist in dispensing children’s glasses.

In her own words

Jessica, said: ‘I didn’t know when I first came to Specsavers for work experience that it would be the start of something very special.

‘I’ve been able to work and study over the last decade, and now I’m aiming to undertake the Specsavers Pathway programme to senior management and one day own my own store.

‘I appreciate all of the opportunities that have come my way in my career so far but the highlight of my job will always be helping our customers.’
