There’s more to us than meets the eye.
Here at Vision Express we opened our first store in The Metro Centre, Gateshead in 1988 and we haven’t looked back since. With an on-going success story, through a mixture of organic growth and acquisition, we now have over 390 stores across the UK, Jersey and the Republic of Ireland – making us a reputable name in high-street optical retail. What this means for you is a stable business with a strong pedigree, huge support and on-going opportunities for development and growth.
At Vision Express we have a real commitment to our people, our customers and to the long-term. Our ambition is to be the best Optical retailer in the UK by providing an individual service to each and every one of our customers. With this in mind there really is no better place to express your potential.
Although we’re a recognised brand in our own right, we’re also part of GrandVision NV, a leading worldwide optical retail group. Other names in the group include Solaris, Apollo and Generale D’Optique. Combined, the group has almost 31,000 employees and over 6,100 stores in 44 countries. Even better, GrandVision NV is owned by HAL Holdings – and that’s good news for us. HAL’s vision is focussed on building its portfolio of businesses, and it’s very much thinking long-term…. in other words, there’s a stable and on-going commitment to investment and growth. That means we can continue to grow and develop our business with the full support of a successful and fast expanding group which offers long-term and international career prospects.
