Practice address: Oakwood Eyecare, Oakwood, Derby, DE21 2HT.

About the role: Based within easy travelling distance of Derby; Oakwood Eyecare, Alvaston Opticians and Kimberley Opticians pride themselves on offering the best patient care.

Their ethos is putting the customer first and therefore quick tests and targets are not our priority. Patient satisfaction and loyalty have built the businesses, whose goals are to exceed expectations.

Across the 3 branches there is an Optomap, 2 OCT’s, a topographer, a colorimeter and each practice has an I Care tonometer and Thomson Test charts. All pre-screening is done by fully-trained support staff and Optoms are given longer than average test times to enable them to provide great customer care (currently 40 mins). The practices are well-staffed with DO’s and OA’s plus other support staff covering contact lens plans and admin.

There is great variety of work which include eye examinations, Optomap/OCT, MECS/CUES, contact lens work, myopia management (including Orthokeratology), referral refinement and coloured overlay/colorimetry assessments. Training will be given in any areas you are unfamiliar.

All 3 branches use the Optix Practice Management system of paperless records, which is quite intuitive so easy to pick up. The test rooms are large and air-conditioned to provide a comfortable environment.

The Optometrist partners have the drive to make work interesting and rewarding. If interested, there is opportunity of progression either through higher qualifications or potential partnership in the medium term for the right candidate.

Benefits include GOC, BCO, professional indemnity cover, WPA health scheme, free parking outside each practice, and access to a Staff Wellness platform offering discounts on numerous high street retailers. The businesses are growing, creating stability of employment

We are looking for an Optometrist (ideally full-time) to work across 2 of the 3 branches.
