Optometrist, Scartho Eyecare, Grimsby

Optometrist North East Part-time Permanent Apply by 31 December 2023

About the role

We are a small but vibrant independent practice seeking an enthusiastic optometrist to join our friendly team for 3 days a week (more days may be available in future, if desired). Situated on a pleasant suburban high street with free parking nearby, the position is fully backed up by qualified dispensing and reception staff - who also make excellent tea and coffee! To maintain and improve on our position, we repeatedly reinvest in new equipment, the most recent being an OCT, Topographer and DRS confocal camera. 

We are also constantly seeking ways to expand and diversify the practice, with the introduction of specialist contact lens fitting and a dry eye clinic being two recent examples. Combined with testing times of between 30 and 45 minutes and a well-stocked shop, we are well placed to provide a tailored and personal experience to all of our patients. As an optometrist at our practice, you will benefit from a varied workload as well having the time and equipment required to make the most of your skills and experience. Crucially, we also believe that setting conversion or other sales related targets is just not compatible with running a professional optical practice. We don’t believe the stress and discomfort arising from such pressures is of any benefit to either staff or patients. Our own view is that real, long-term success is built on competent, intelligent management that places the highest standards of patient care and service at the centre of everything. We also realise that this can only be delivered by happy, engaged staff who enjoy a healthy work / life balance. This is one reason why everyone at our practice spends Christmas with their families, not at work and why this and all free time can be enjoyed without feelings of dread about work. If you’re looking for a more stress free, patient-centric career, please get in touch.
