The store is due for rebrand in the coming 12 months and we have Specsavers equipment in rooms. Phoropter heads are installed and we would consider any specific equipment requirements.

What’s more, you must be passionate about what you do with an aptitude for organisation – which means you keep accurate records and always have up-to-date knowledge of the latest developments in your field.
