You’ll also work closely with Optometrists and Dispensing Opticians to determine the best solutions for our clients, while helping to dispense spectacles to, and collect from, clients.

To begin with, our working environment is professional, fun, open and committed to supporting you, your professional development, and your personal wellbeing.

About Us At Bayfields, we’re not like other opticians and audiologists, so the way our people grow and develop is different, too. Here, you can pick the future that works best for you, whether that’s moving from practice to a central role, taking on business projects, or building your skills on brilliant courses such as the Hearing Care Assistant course or the ABDO College Optical Assistant Development course. Add our unique commitment to customer service and a caring and supportive working environment that’s focused on your wellbeing, and you’ll discover a career that can really take you places. We call it being your best – and it’s about thinking harder, working smarter, and always trying to find another way.
