Specsavers in Sale and Altrincham is celebrating the recent expansion of the teams in both stores as they welcome a new Hearing Director.
Anum Saleemi is the new hearing director for Specsavers in Sale at The Square Shopping Centre and Altrincham on George Street, where she will work alongside current store directors Steven Dare and Kevin Liu.
Anum, who is 27, joins the company after previously working for both the NHS and a large hearing aid company.
An entrepreneur at heart, Anum knew she wanted to work for Specsavers after being involved in her father’s own business when she was younger: ‘I’ve always wanted to combine my ambition to run my own business with my passion for audiology and helping people with hearing problems. Joining the teams at Sale and Altrincham allows this, and I can’t wait to get to work!
‘For me the best feeling is when someone is struggling with their hearing and I can help them rectify this in some way. In many cases, hearing loss can leave people feeling socially isolated, and so when I help them hear confidently again I can witness their personality brighten up within minutes. That’s what makes me most proud in the work that I do.’
Anum’s arrival has increased the amount of clinic days available in both stores, meaning they are in a better position to meet the customer demand for hearing appointments in Sale and Altrincham. Further recruitment is underway so both stores can continue to efficiently deliver the expanding range of audiology services offered by Specsavers.
Opthalmic director in Sale, Kevin Liu, spoke highly of the new addition to the team: ‘Anum is a great example of the dedication and hard work customers have come to expect from Specsavers, whether that’s on the optical or audiology side of the business.
'Her enthusiasm has already been noted by customers and staff alike, and Steven and I are looking forward to seeing both stores go from strength to strength now that Anum is part of the team.’
