Specsavers Uckfield recently joined forces with the Tunbridge Wells store to attend a careers fair for local schools.
Training and support
The store, in Uckfield High Street, was there to highlight the benefits of a career in optometry – and why Specsavers might be the right choice for wannabe optometrists thanks to the potential for tailored training and support.
They were also showing off a new website, ‘A Career with a View', which outlines the role and the opportunities available.
The careers fair was held at Tunbridge Wells Grammar School for Girls, but was attended by students from schools right across the local area.
Fancy a challenge?
Badrinath Mohandas, store director in Uckfield, said: ‘Optometry is a terrific career. It is full of variety and new challenges. Every day really is different, and could change someone’s life – so you will certainly never be bored.
‘At Specsavers, we are always on the lookout for the next generation of optometrists. We offer store visits, work experience placements, and even support through university.’
Build a career with us
‘Even if optometry itself is not for you, or a family member, you still might find a promising career with Specsavers. Our training and development is second to none, and that is probably why so many senior people across the company started out in quite junior roles. Why not check out our recruitment website – and maybe we will see you on our team soon.’
