Samuel Watson, 27, is the store’s supervising dispensing optician.

Almost 10 years experience 

He has worked here for 9 and a half years, starting off as Saturday staff, before training to be an optical assistant and then developing himself into a dispensing optician. He was then promoted to supervisor, and in-store trainer due to his experience.

He said: ‘I was fortunate to be given weekend work, and I must have made someone happy to be made full time.

Problem solving

'I love providing people with a service which can improve their life. Abnormal ocular conditions are always an interest to me but my favourite aspects of my work are problem solving and triaging.

'A challenge is always welcome. Developing the team has become real enjoyment recently. As in-store trainer, it’s really rewarding to help the people you work with.'
