A message from the client:

We are looking for a primary optometrist at our practice in South East London

Our group has run multiple optician practices in London and South England for the last decade.
We plan to expand our network of practices and build a business as a supplier as well.
We are extremely passionate about delivering an exceptional and personal experience to our patients and making a difference in their lives.
We pride ourselves on offering a personal service with sufficient consultation time and our clinical knowledge to build lasting relationships with our customers.
We aim to perform OCT on all our patients without extra charge because it is our belief that the most advanced eye test should be available to everyone – not just those who can afford it.
We have a strong commitment to myopia management as this is legacy work and manifestly improves the patient’s quality of life. We are considering various specialty clinics including specialist contact lenses, dry eye management and Minor Eye Conditions.
We are happy to discuss with candidates their areas of interest and explore these if commercially viable. In order to facilitate our objectives, we are happy to fund further learning and aim to ensure our employees feel as valued as our customers do.
We are a tight-knit team and are looking to build a long-term working relationship with the right candidate. The practice is currently operated with one full-time and one part-time optical assistant with all the equipment required to conduct an eye examination.
Our primary objective is to find the right candidate before we expand the team with their input on new recruits.
A new state-of-the-art 3D OCT has been sanctioned and will be delivered along with a new 4 in 1 prescreening instrument and Topographer within 6 months of the appointment.
Our aim is to build the practice of the future with their help.
