About the role

We're a city centre, in-store practice in Swansea, a city that's undergoing major development, with a new arena having opened in March 22. With over 100 years experience across the entire team, we're very friendly and sociable and our clinical team is complemented with a full time dispensing optician to support the excellent care we provide to our patients. 

  • Extremely competitive salary of up to £60,000 (depending on experience, location and mobility) 
  • A highly-rewarding, performance-based, uncapped discretionary bonus scheme up to £1,200 per quarter 
  • Relocation package available 

This is your chance to be part of something a bit different. You’ll use your outstanding qualifications and passion for your role to provide an exceptional level of care to our patients. Our patients are also our customers and they are everything for Boots Opticians. Working with the Practice Manager, our Optical Teams and Clinical Governance Optometrists, you’ll create a culture where everyone is passionate about doing the right thing for them. Together these elements will play a big part in making us No 1 for Customer Care. 

What you’ll be doing day to day:

  • Using your leadership skills and passion for your patients to inspire your colleagues to deliver a really memorable customer journey. 
  • Bringing your vibrant personality into the day to day running of the practice – setting high standards to ensure everything runs professionally. 
  • Building firm and longstanding relationships – not only with colleagues and customers but with healthcare professionals in the local community.
  •  Listening to our customers – and provide the right, up to date information at all times. 
  • Selecting the best products for each customer. 
  • Ensuring that you effectively lead your team so that our customers receive an excellent service in a great environment. 
  • Ensuring that we uphold the highest possible standard of clinical care. 

You will need to be a fully qualified GOC registered Optometrist with additional registration with the relevant NHS body, but in addition to this we’re looking for really inspiring people, with a friendly professional personality. It’s all about working together as one great team – after all, it’s our people that are at the heart of our business. It’s a fantastic opportunity to add to your own professional development, and a chance to learn more about us as a business. It could open up even more opportunities for you with Boots Opticians, as we believe we can offer you the best professional development in the business. But it isn’t just about experience, we’re interested in developing you a bit more, the real you – and that is what makes us all feel good.
