Specsavers Recruitment Services (SRS) Manager Carly Parkinson discusses how the SRS in-house recruitment service helps match optical professionals with opportunities in Specsavers stores across Australia and New Zealand.

What are the main functions of the SRS team?
Our team looks after the full-time, part-time and locum recruitment of optometrists and optical retailers (store managers, qualified dispensers and optical assistants). We are dedicated to ensuring that Specsavers stores have the necessary cover to facilitate efficient clinics, offer exceptional patient care, and play a pivotal part in transforming eye health across Australia and New Zealand.

We also manage the Specsavers OCANZ Support Program, which helps qualified overseas optometrists through the mandatory Optometry Council of Australia and New Zealand (OCANZ) accreditation process so that they can practise in and / or relocate to Australia or New Zealand.

What types of opportunities are available?
Specsavers has full-time, part-time and locum opportunities across all metro, greater metro, and regional areas within Australia and New Zealand. We offer attractive salary and benefits packages, the latest equipment, including OCT, and have a structured career development ladder that supports the personal and professional growth of all team members.

How does your team help optical professionals find the right opportunity with Specsavers?
The candidate is at the heart of everything we do, and we pride ourselves on the relationships we build, which ultimately ensure the right candidate is aligned with the right opportunity. Our team is available to assist both store partners and candidates from Monday to Friday, 7 am to 7 pm (AEST).
