Members of the team at Specsavers in Windsor have answered some of our questions about their roles in the store and why they started their careers in optics. Read on to hear more about the Windsor team.
Emily – Apprentice Optical Assistant
Emily has been with the team eleven months and is currently completing her apprenticeship at the store.
Emily said: ‘I’ve always been interested in eye health and came across the apprenticeship online. Once I’ve completed this level of training, I’m looking to complete my CERT 3 qualification.
‘The team are fantastic here and I love all aspects of the job from pre-screening and dispensing to learning about adjusting and repairing specs. It definitely keeps me busy.’
Joanna – Optical Advisor
Joanna is currently working part time at the store and has been part of the team for three years.
Joanna said: ‘I work across a lot of different areas in the store to help out the full time members of staff. I really enjoy helping customers choose their frames and see the smile on their faces when they come to collect their specs and see themselves wearing them for the first time.’
Jay – Pre-reg Optometrist
Jay has been part of the Specsavers Windsor team for four years. Jay said: ‘I didn’t have any confidence when I first started this job.
I could barely even communicate to customers on the phone so this job has been an incredible learning experience for me. ‘I really enjoy helping all the patients that come into the store and hearing about their stories.
I’m also excited to complete my pre-registration optometrist qualification later this year.’
