Meet the West Wickham directors
Dedicated to delivering quality optical care in the community, store directors Bamini Raj and Lindsay May have a combined 35 years working for Specsavers.
Ophthalmic director Bamini and commercial director Lindsay lead a team of six optical professionals at Specsavers in West Wickham.
Mother of two, Bamini began her 19-year career with Specsavers as a seasonal staff member, before studying ophthalmology at university in Bradford. She later took up a pre-registration optometrist role with the company, before working towards the role of store director.
Bamini says: ‘For me the best thing about my job is meeting and working with such a diverse range of people. What’s more, I love science so this really is my dream role.’
Lindsay, a stepmum of two, started her 16 year journey with Specsavers when she was studying for a vocational qualification. Following that, she went on to further study and took up her own role as store director.
Lindsay adds: ‘Like Bamini, I’m a people person. The highlight of my day is always meeting and greeting customers, and working alongside my colleagues - we’re like a little family in store.’
Outside of work, the good friends enjoy spending time with their families, with Bamini making time for cooking and travel, and Lindsay enjoying her love of music and singing.
