Specsavers Whakatane - Optometrist

Role summary

Are you someone that enjoys the Sun? Well, Whakatane would be a great location for you – as it often records the most sunshine hours in NZ! It’s a thriving town and offers a spectacular way of life. Whakatane has some remarkable views, including that of an active volcano. It’s an outdoor enthusiast’s dream location, but it truly offers something amazing for everyone! All of this and the astonishing aspect is that it offers astonishing cost of living.

Specsavers Whakatane is seeking a full-time optometrist to join their team. This store is equipped with the latest equipment, including an OCT. It has two consulting rooms equipped with fully automated equipment and a number of dispensing desks. The store has two very experienced partners, they are supported with a well-trained dispensing team who will make your life easier and allow you to focus on the clinical side.

We’re on a clear mission to transform eye health in Australia and New Zealand – and we’d like you to join us on that mission.

Our equipment and technology strategies, our close working relationships with ophthalmology and key eye disease stakeholders alongside our major investments into dispensing qualifications all contribute to a singular purpose – to transform the eye health of Australians and New Zealanders.

So, if you’re concerned at the 50 per cent undiagnosed glaucoma cohort and the under-indexing of diabetic retinopathy screenings; if you’re worried that available in-store technology isn’t being used on every patient due to extra fees and charges; and if you’re alarmed at the under-investment in professional dispensing programs and technology – then we urge you to talk to us about how you can make a genuine impact at Specsavers.

Contact Chris Rickard today on or call 027 579 5499 for a confidential chat.
