Full Job Description
To be employed in this role you must be over the age of 18.
About the Role
Our in-store Opticians are hugely popular with our customers and they’ll expect the same warmth and friendliness they get everywhere else in the store – as well as being confident and relaxed about discussing personal ocular health issues, quickly resolving customer problems and taking customers to the right products.
Wherever you are, we put our customers first with excellent service, welcoming stores and ‘extra special’ products – we work as a team to maximise sales and deliver a great shopping trip.
You’ll be responsible for:
Preparing patients for their eye examination and explaining what each stage of the eye test involves
Completing pre-screening examinations
Booking appointments for customers
Dispensing spectacles and contact lenses as well as dealing with repairs and adjustments
Ensuring stock has been received by the supplier
We’ll help you to become a star colleague from learning how to dispense glasses and contact lenses, looking after repairs, adjustments and glasses verification to teaching contact lens insertion and removals – with our great training and support, we’ll help you keep getting better and better.
We’ll work with you on your shifts, but the chances are you’ll have to work some evenings and weekends and we may need to be flexible with your work pattern – there’s something to suit everyone.
You’ll be naturally friendly, highly organised and want to get stuck in, working with your team to deliver great results. You have good computer skills, attention to detail and you communicate well with customers. You also love problem solving and are confident working with numbers. You’re passionate about helping people and care about giving customers a great healthcare experience, helping them find what they need and having a chat along the way.
Alongside a competitive salary, you’ll get lots of other great benefits too, including 10% off your Asda shopping, incentive schemes, a pension scheme, bonus scheme and discounts across a range of services and activities, from airport parking to theme parks and cinemas.
