Store manager at Specsavers in Southend, Luke Klein, is celebrating two decades of service at the local opticians.
A life-long career
The 41-year-old from Benfleet began working at the store as an optical assistant in 1998 after graduating from Camarthenshire College of Art and Design with a HND in Wildlife Illustration.
Three years later he became the assistant manager of the store and in 2011 he was promoted to store manager.
‘I like the variety’
Luke said: ‘I really enjoy the interaction with customers at the store. I like the variety this job offers - no day is exactly the same.’
In his spare time Luke enjoys playing the drums, socialising, rambling in nature and the countryside and continues his interest in art.
