Newbury is a small market town nestled in West Berkshire with so much going for it! By day you can enjoy Newbury’s top class race course, a visit to Highclere Castle (home of Downton Abbey), or a scenic walk/cycle on one of the many trails this town has to offer. By night you can sample food at some of the best eateries and continue the night in the town’s bars and pubs.

Newbury is extremely well connected, by both road and train, placed within an hour of London, Oxford and Bristol.


What we’re looking for
Alongside being a qualified and GOC registered Optometrist, we are searching for someone who shares our store’s ethos. Someone who wants to grow, develop and offer exceptional customer care along the way. We want a practitioner who prides themselves on their clinical judgment, that isn’t afraid of a hands-on approach and who is keen to get involved and build rapport with the rest of the team. In summary, we’re looking for a skilled resident Optometrist to join us, be part of the team and assist in driving our practice forward.
