Optical Receptionist - Hastings - East Sussex

Full-time Permanent

Salary - £17,000 per annum

The Company:

My Clients have been established in the area since 1949.

Since that time they have been offering independent, quality eye care in Hastings, Lewes, Tenterden and Rye.

At the heart of their service lies a thorough and unhurried eye test for all their patients.

This often includes the latest technology, such as the Optomap retinal scanner, which enables them to capture up to 80% of a patients retina in one panoramic image.

Being an independent optician means they are free to select the best products from any manufacturer, which means you will find a wide range of frames, spectacle lenses and contact lenses - all at competitive prices.

They are regularly updating the range of frames they have so you can choose from the latest styles and designs including leading designer brands.

This attention to detail and excellent customer service means that customers have come to them for generations, and return time and time again.

The Role:

Due to staff relocation a full time vacancy to include Saturdays has arisen within the Hastings Team.

This is a multi-faceted position involving general reception duties as well as carrying out some clinical tests for the branch, full training will be provided for this aspect of the role.

The role will predominately be based at Hastings in East Sussex but at times travel to other branches will be required. Car driver would be better for this role.
