Optometrist - Palmerston North

Role summary

We currently have an exciting opportunity for an experienced Optometrist to join our Specsavers store in Palmerston North as a full time employee.

Specsavers Palmerston North is situated in a shopping mall. The store has 4 equipped test rooms with the latest automated equipment, and you will also have access to an OCT. The store has three experienced partners, and you will be working alongside a well-trained dispensing team who will make your life easier and allow you to focus on the clinical side.

Palmerston North offers the intricacy and diversity of a major city, however surrounded by an outdoor enthusiasts dream. There is a colourful array of cafes and dining options for you to enjoy along with its heritage collections, art galleries and urban street art.

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 chris.rickard@specsavers.com or call 027 579 5499 for a confidential chat.
