Silvana Rojas is the store manager at Specsavers in Walworth Road.

She started working for the company in September 2013 and will celebrate her fifth anniversary with the store later this year.

Journey to management

Born in London, Silvana joined Specsavers after taking a gap year following her A-levels and worked in the call centre at Specsavers.

From here she undertook all of the Specsavers courses, from her Cert 3 to Enhanced Optical Services and her ILM2 and 3. She worked her way towards being an in-store trainer before duly being promoted to her position as store Manager in 2016.

Optical education

Silvana says: ‘Specsavers have provided me with an excellent optical education and have supported me every step of the way.

'I’ve got a very vibrant, creative and passionate team working for me and every day I come into work I feel proud to be a part of the store.’
