Starting out with a career in optics

Twenty-eight year-old Davinia joined the team at Specsavers at the age of 20. After being brought up in Kingston-Upon-Thames, where she was home-schooled, Davinia decided that a career in optics was the right move for her.

Having spent three years at Specsavers as a contact lens assistant, Davinia began her academic career studying Ophthalmic Dispensing at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge in 2009.

A word from Davinia

Davinia said: ‘I love my job and really enjoy coming to work every day. Each day is different to the last, so you never know what to expect when you walk through the door each morning, and that’s why I love it.

‘Staff at the store are like a second family and there’s such a great sense of team work. I couldn’t ask for better colleagues.’

When Davinia is not helping customers decide on the perfect frames to suit their face, she enjoys reading and dancing.
