Expert careers advice will be available on Specsavers’ stand throughout the 100% Optical fair in London from 27 to 29 January.
One of several career development experts who will be on the stand, ready to meet people, is Victoria Taylor, Head of Professional Recruitment and Retention.
She commented: ‘At 100% Optical in 2017, we saw a marked upturn in the number of people coming to the stand to ask about career and partnership opportunities with Specsavers and we had some really good quality discussions.
‘Clearly the message is getting through that Specsavers is a great place to work, with a deep-seated commitment to clinical excellence.
‘Between us, over the years, we have advised and coached hundreds of practitioners, helping them to decide for themselves what kind of career is best for them. They might choose to follow a more clinical route, and perhaps become the lead optometrist in a practice. They might choose to specialise in a particular area, in enhanced optical services for example. Or perhaps, they want to own their own practice and lead a team of people as a joint venture partner.
‘We know that it can be confusing when there are so many options out there, and so much change going on in the profession, and if someone wants to take 15 minutes out to discuss their career, we are here to help.’
The Specsavers stand also has a mini-auditorium where a full CET programme will run throughout the event, with up to 16 interactive CET points available to practitioners each day.
