Contract Type:
Full Time


Optometrist at Eyesentials and VJ Hughes

About us:

We bet that we’ve got at least three things we can offer you that your current employer won’t! Or can’t?

How do we know? Because we are the only optical company in the UK to be listed in the Sunday Times 100 Best Companies To Work For in 2017.

We are looking for a talented, patient focused Optometrist to join our team across our two independent practices, VJ Hughes and Eyesentials.

These family-led independent practices have constantly invested in the latest technology ensuring the highest quality eye-care possible. Back in 2004, we were one of the first Opticians in the area to invest in retinal photography, and we didn’t stop there!  In 2008 we invested in OCT equipment allowing us to offer comprehensive eye examinations to all our patients.

We provide all aspects of eyecare including, Eye Examinations, Contact Lenses, Diabetic and Glaucoma Screening, Dry Eye Management and Cataract Referral.

Life at Eyesentials and VJ Hughes

No two days in our practices are the same! You’ll be working as part of a team of highly motivated dynamic individuals who are passionate about independent optics and customer service.

You’ll never just be an employee; you’ll be part of the very fabric of the business as we all work together to provide exceptional service that cannot be found elsewhere. Ideas and insight are welcomed and encouraged, so you will have an active role in helping to drive our practices forward.

Why us?

We offer a fantastic range of benefits including a calendar full of exciting events, employee health plan, access to our financial flexibility fund, HG Academy and Rewards Gift Box, are just a few to mention along with a competitive salary.

You’ll also be embraced by our ever expanding family and introduced to our award-winning philosophy, FISH – finding inner self-happiness. Sound intriguing? You’ll have to apply to find out more!
