Sanjiv Sharma has recently completed 15 years of being a store partner at Specsavers in East Ham.

Sanjiv started his career as a locum for Specsavers at Ilford and Stratford. He worked his way up to becoming store partner in May 2005 and has not looked back since.

Changing industries

Sanjiv says: ‘Specsavers has been the most amazing opportunity and it has been great to see the way the industry has changed over the last 15 years.

‘We have some brilliant technology available now like the OCT which can scan your eyes for issues up to four years before they become a problem.’

Certificate awarded by the business

To recognise Sanjiv’s long service, the business awarded him a certificate to thank him for all of his hard work.

Sanjiv continues: ‘It has been brilliant to get to know the East Ham community and look after its members. After 15 years, we have recurring customers who are incredibly important to us, as well as being able to welcome new customers to the area. We have had some wonderful optometrists work with us and it has been a pleasure to be able to train up our staff and see them grow in their roles.’
