Apprenticeships are our opportunity to provide young people with an alternative to college or university, providing a first step into the working world where you can earn while you learn. You can also pick up nationally recognised qualifications along the way which are equivalent to 5 good GCSEs.
At Vision Express we’ve developed a 13 month programme covering all aspects of Retail and a comprehensive introduction to the world of optics. Our programme is managed and delivered by training experts who are employees of Vision Express and not by a third party training provider. Our aim is to grow future talent for our business. We want the very best Apprentices on board so we’re putting our money where our mouth is and paying over the national minimum wage for all our Apprentices.
We’re not looking for any specific experience or qualifications but we do look for people with a passion to succeed, who are warm and welcoming and who have an enthusiastic approach to work. It’s an intensive programme and you’ll get out what you put in, so if you show commitment and work hard there’s every chance for you to build a great career.
You can expect:
- In-store support from your assessor whenever you need it
- Dedicated team and structured training
- Excellent career opportunities
- Varied store locations including shopping centres, high street and local towns
- The opportunity to complete functional skills in Maths and English
- A salary offer that’s way above the national minimum wage, with benefits to match
What you’ll find it that our programme is designed around you, making sure you have the skills, knowledge and tools to prepare you for your future career. On completion of the programme we’ll invite you and your family to celebrate your success at a graduation ceremony before looking to place you into a permanent role within one of our stores.
You’ll quickly see how hard everyone works to create a welcoming environment for our customers and that warm welcome also extends to you.
