What are the top traits of an optometrist at Vision Express?
We create joy in vision. It’s as simple as that. So how do we do it? We build our teams of people who love people and are passionate about their optometry careers.
Once you’ve passed the OSCE and earned yourself the title of a newly qualified optometrist, the next step is to decide where to build your career. You’re now ready to join the other 14,000 opticians working in the UK, but do you work for an independent optician or a multiple practice optician like Vision Express?
We understand that career moves are a big decision, and they shouldn’t be taken lightly. So we’ve put together a list of the top traits of an optometrist at Vision Express.
It’s our goal to give customers incredible value. We want them to walk out of our stores knowing they look good and see well for a fair price. But one person can't do it all, and they don't need to when they work in a team full of people who care about eyecare. Working as a team is one of the top skills you need in an optometry career, and it’s the key if you want to be a success at Vision Express.
2. An open mind
If you’re looking to build a successful Optom career, you’ll go far with an open mind. Our people welcome any chance to learn and find a better way. They get stuck in whatever opportunity comes their way.
3. A high-achiever
There are lots of traits that our colleagues share. One is the drive to be part of something bigger. Every single eyecare professional working in our stores has their own career aspirations, and we believe in helping them in every way possible. Such as creating more opportunities. As our brand and reputation grow, so do the opportunities for our optometrists.
Optometrists need to concentrate while completing routine eye tests. You might complete a few of these throughout the day, but you need to make sure you’re completely focused on the task so that every customer gets the right eyecare solution. Your diligence and care will earn you a top reputation in the optometry industry.
5. Keeping customer service front of mind
We've saved the best until last. At Vision Express, it’s all about people. Our colleagues deliver value through meaningful relationships. We provide great customer service because our customers trust us to take care of their eyes. It all starts with getting to know our customers and creating a personalised service.
