Who are they?

Specsavers is the largest privately-owned optical chain with more than 1,800 stores in 10 different counties (750 in the UK). Specsavers also has over 80 domiciliary partners in the UK. 

With more than 18,000 store staff and 1,500 support staff we would say that Specsavers is by far one of the biggest high street optical chain in the UK 

Given their size and speed of grow the number of opportunities are endless. 

To gain an idea of the pure size of their business 2015/16 sales figures show that they sold 19.5 Million frames and 400 Million contact lens

What are their strength’s?

Although size offers a major advantage over its competitors, We feel that it is the Specsavers culture that makes it a good place to work. 

By still operating with the same family values that started the business it is felt that this has resulted in Specsavers looking to continue to drive towards making everyone feel unique and special from day one

Taking into account the business ethos and the sheer size of the operation the opportunities are endless and joining the Specsavers empire is something we would highly recommend you consider.
