Become our new Optometrist at Specsavers in Grimsby – a highly successful store with a great reputation for staff progression and the very highest standards of customer care. 


We’re fully equipped with 7 test rooms, the latest clinical technology (including OCT), and a team of 20 – which includes fully trained optical assistants, so everything is in place to let you focus on what you do best.

We are passionate about the clinical development of our team, and as our new Optometrist, we would support you with extra courses and specialisms that interest you. Whatever your ambitions, from WOPEC qualifications and independent prescribing to paediatric accreditations or enhanced optical services, we’ll do everything we can to help you be the best clinician you can be.  


Our Optometrists are an integral part of our store management team, so we’re keen to get you up to speed outside the test room too. With ILM courses, Pre-Reg supervision and the Specsavers Partnership scheme (Pathway) all available to explore. Along with your clinical expertise – this will stand you in good stead if you choose to become a store director yourself one day.


What makes us different?
The role offers the opportunity to work with Consultant Ophthalmologists both directly and via telemedicine. Secondary care level Glaucoma and cataract patient services are seen within the practice. Furthermore, consultant led training and coaching will be available in addition to the enhanced optical services expertise from our EOS Heads.


 Welcome to the seaside!
This position will take you into the town of Grimsby, known for its spectacular beaches and seafood – perfect for people looking to escape to the seaside. Not only is the landscape brimming with beautiful views and architecture, it is within an easy distance of major towns including Hull, Lincoln, and Doncaster, whilst benefitting from being a short commute from some beautiful areas including Weelsby Woods, Peoples Park and Cleethorpes Beach. Despite being remote, we still profit from having a train station a short walk from the practice, and easy bus routes to the surrounding areas.


Platinum employer

The Platinum Employer Scheme is part of the Specsavers drive to become a famous place to work. 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.

You’ll be passionate about your job and enjoy a fast-paced environment. We are looking for an Optometrist who will go the extra mile for our customers and someone who encourages their colleagues to do the same. In summary, we’re looking for a high calibre resident Optometrist to join us and assist in driving this excellent practice forward.
