My client is situated on a busy road with a strong client base of both private and NHS patients.
They have a long serving and dedicated support team in the practice who are all working towards making this practice successful.
The opening hours are from 9.00 – 5.30, Monday to Saturday and closed on Sundays and can consider both full and part time optometrists.
This is a new venture for my client and is looking to take the practice forward and starting off with a 3 day optometrist with growth in mind. Experience of working in an independent environment would be an advantage but not essential as is more a willingness to be a part of a new team with all aspects of working in opticians covered. The company offers a wide selection of products and services and more important this is not a hard sell environment.
