Optical careers in the frame
Two members of staff from Street Specsavers took part in a careers fair held at Strode College.
Chatting to students
Catherine Pinkawa and Tahliya Hankins chatted to students who came to visit them on the stand and handed out goody bags.
Catherine also gave a talk where she spoke about the recruitment process at the store for both optics and hearcare, gave some tips on CV writing and highlighted the opportunities available at the store for work experience and apprenticeships.
An insight on working at Specsavers
‘We wanted to give the students an insight into what it is like to work for Specsavers, and the opportunities we have to offer them,’ said Catherine.
‘For those who might be considering studying optometry, I talked about the entry requirements as well as the opportunities available to study for Cert 3 and Cert 4 qualifications while working for us. Hopefully it was helpful and made some of the students think about pursuing a career with us.’
