Staff from Specsavers in Didcot attended a careers evening held at the Didcot Civic Hall, organised by Didcot Boys School.

Three members of the Specsavers team; Sarah Munns, store supervisor, Rukhsana Bi, optical director and Sabrina Ali, resident optometrist, attended the event which was aimed at Year 9 students.

A word from the store director

‘This was a great opportunity to discuss the benefits of a career in optics with the pupils, and we were pleasantly surprised by the amount of interest we had,’ said store director Rukhsana Bi.

‘We were able to chat around the various optical career paths; whether that’s studying to become an opthalmologist, or looking more at the retail side of the business. 

‘And I think we certainly had a few who were keen to consider a career in optometry and we may well be arranging some work experience opportunites on the back of the event.’
