Role summary

About Specsavers:

Specsavers has been going from strength to strength, ever since the business started back in 1984. We strive for the highest clinical standards – and believe that the customer should be at the heart of everything we do. We also recognise that our people are critical to our past and future success – so we do everything we can to make sure they get the experience and career they’re looking for: from outstanding training and a personal development plan, to excellent benefits and unstinting support. The business has nearly 1,500 stores across 12 countries – and is still growing. We want you to be part of this outstanding success story.

About the Role:

Join our team in Seven Hills as an Optical Assistant, and you’ll discover why at Specsavers, we pride ourselves on providing the foundation for exciting, long-term careers – a home where your previous retail expertise will be truly valued and where you’ll be given the opportunity to thrive. With a business that’s constantly expanding, both in the Australia and abroad, the opportunities to expand your knowledge base and develop a career have never looked better.

As an Optical Assistant, you’ll make sure every customer gets a great experience when they come into our store. It means listening to what they want, explaining our offers and products, and dispensing lenses. You’ll work to healthcare guidelines (as well as our own high standards), give good, clear advice and make a positive impression, thanks to your polite and professional approach.

To secure this role you will need previous experience as either an optical assistant or have a strong background in a retail environment.

We’ll continue to develop and expand your knowledge of vision problems, eyecare and our products. As well as demonstrating that you’re a natural when it comes to customer care; you’re articulate, good with people with an organised approach and always happy to help, so you’ll fit right in as a valuable member of our friendly store team, joining a business that’s going places.

What's in it for you? Well not only will you be working for a multi award winning retailer but you will also be offered the following benefits:

  • Your chance to study a professional qualification and grow and develop your technical skill-set within Optical 
  • Have the chance to work with fantastic, well known brands with more than 1,000 frame styles and colours
  • A comprehensive Induction program
  • A supportive culture that can be felt throughout our organisation, wherever you are

How to apply:
If you want a meaningful role in which you can make a long term impact, this could be the opportunity you have been waiting for.
