The eyes have it.
Time. There's never enough of it.
Optometrists at Leightons have 30 minutes for every eye examination, which means you get longer to deliver the kind of care you came into the profession to give. Because you know that no two pairs of eyes are the same, and everyone deserves personalised individual attention.
If you're a fully qualified optometrist, who really cares about customers and want to help them live life to the full, we should be talking.
Naturally, you'll be a great communicator, full of patience and empathy, happy to work in a small team. Commercially minded, you care about a job well done and have lots of motivation to set and achieve your own goals. In return, we'll give you a competitive salary plus an attractive benefits package and a great place to work.
