This National Apprenticeship Week (February 3-7) Specsavers in Waltham Cross is encouraging people to sign up to the apprenticeship programmes on offer at the store by sharing the story of Shannon, who has been with Specsavers for the last 9 months.
Opening up her options
Shannon says: ‘I used to work in a pub, but decided I wanted more. Specsavers gave me the opportunity to build my skills up and it’s great because every day is different.’
‘I have been really happy to see the creative side of the Specsavers brand as it has given me direction in where I would like to go next. As well as this I have really enjoyed learning about all of the different elements of optics, particularly the eye health side that a lot of people don’t know fully.’
Supported by Tony Martin, store director, and Kainat Malik, store manager
Tony Martin, store director at Specsavers Waltham Cross, says: ‘We always welcome apprentices as they are often fantastic. It’s great to watch them grow as people and see them develop as members of the team.
‘The Specsavers apprenticeship programmes are a great way to begin a rewarding and successful career.’
