The team from Specsavers in Taunton attended a speed dating evening at the Queens College in Taunton to discuss career opportunities in the industry.

Staff from the store attended the event to offer advice and tips to students interested in the optical industry.

Nathan Burn, store manager at Specsavers Taunton said; ‘We had a great night at Queens College meeting all the students. We hope we have inspired them to consider a career in optics, and hope to see a few friendly faces coming in to our store for work placements.’

Sam Corrie, regional general HR manager said: ‘We had a great night at the speed dating event and looked forward to meeting all the students. We are always looking for students that are interested in optometry to come and work with us in the store for work experience placements. We also love to hear from people who are not looking for optical career paths but more on senior, supervisor and management positions.’
