FORT KINNAIRD SPECSAVERS, EDINBURGH
FULL TIME TO INCLUDE LATE NIGHT AND WEEKEND WORKING
Let our training take you further
Join our team as an Optical Assistant, and you’ll discover why at Specsavers, we pride ourselves on providing the foundation for exciting, long-term careers. Optical expertise isn’t essential. You just need the desire to learn and the drive to progress – our training will do the rest. Once you’ve learned the ropes, bingo - the world’s your oyster. With a business that’s constantly expanding, both in the UK and abroad, the opportunities to launch a retail career have never looked better.
As an Optical Assistant, you’ll make sure every customer gets a great experience when they come into our store. It means listening to what they want, explaining our offers and products, and dispensing single vision lenses. You’ll work to NHS guidelines (as well as our own high standards), give good, clear advice and make a positive impression, thanks to your polite and professional approach.
We can teach you everything you need to know about vision problems, eyecare and our products. But you’ll need to be a natural when it comes to customer care – articulate, good with people and always happy to help. We’ll also be looking for an organised approach and a good standard of education. Make the grade and you could soon be part of a friendly store team – and a business that’s going places.
Specsavers has been going from strength to strength, ever since the business started back in 1984. We strive for the highest clinical standards – and believe that the customer should be at the heart of everything we do. We also recognise that our people are critical to our past and future success – so we do everything we can to make sure they get the experience and career they’re looking for: from outstanding training and a personal development plan, to excellent benefits and unstinting support. The business has nearly 1,500 stores across 12 countries – and is still growing. We want you to be part of this outstanding success story.
This store is an accredited Platinum Employer, which means you can expect an exceptional employee experience every single day you work here. The Platinum Employer Scheme is part of our drive to become a famous place to work and stores with this accreditation have been verified on five key employer standards – Recruitment, Performance Management and Reward, Talent Management, Learning and Development and Employee Engagement.
