Specsavers aims to create 24 new vacancies as demand increases
With the relaxation of restrictions and with a large number of customers postponing testing during the pandemic, new roles have been created to meet growing demand.
In addition to clinical vacancies for optometrists and registered audiologists, the company is also recruiting for non-clinical vacancies – including retail, store management and apprenticeship positions – that do not require any prior experience. in optics.
Sean McCauley, President of Specsavers in Northern Ireland and Co-Owner / Optometric Director of Specsavers Stores in Londonderry, said: “We have seen a real rebound in trade across the region so we are very happy to be able de to create these new roles. We would love for people to consider a career with us, even if it means doing something completely different than what they’re used to because we have such a wide range of roles available and offer training at all levels.
The pandemic has proved particularly difficult for workers in retail, with thousands of jobs lost since the first lockdown last March. Two-thirds of those who lost their jobs in the UK were under 25, but Sean McCauley is keen to stress that age and experience are not an issue for the range of new roles on offer.
Sean added, “In addition to those with many years of clinical experience under their belt, we really look forward to talking to people of all backgrounds and ages, so if they may interest you or someone you you know, please get in touch. At Specsavers, we always strive to put the customer at the heart of everything we do. The enlargement of our team will help us to continue on this path. We know a lot of people missed their eye tests during the lockdown, so we advise you to book to see us ASAP. “
