Study and work in the South West

The opening of the optometry course at Plymouth University in 2011 has helped to grow interest in optometry. Stores throughout the region also provide placements for

apprenticeships, paid-for training and sponsorship through university while working in a busy store environment.

Why work in Devon and Cornwall?

Joanna McLean, Bodmin Specsavers store director and regional representative for Devon and Cornwall, said: ‘The advantages of working in Devon and Cornwall are the incredible outdoor lifestyle, a more laid back way of life, lower house prices than the larger cities and a reduced cost of living.


Jo added: ‘As locally-run, independent businesses we are also able to consider flexibility in employment contracts to allow for more outdoors pursuits where the business needs allow.
