Specsavers Graduate Team on a mission to find the generation of optometrists

13 March 2024

The Specsavers Graduate Recruitment Team has been busy hosting their annual Specsavers Information Evenings over the past two months.

The Graduate Team have already held Information Evenings for Flinders University, UNSW, University of Melbourne, QUT, Deakin University and University of Western Australia, with the final Information Evening to be held for University of Auckland in early April.

The Information Evenings are the first major intervention that the team have with final year Optometry students for 2024 and provides an opportunity to network with the students and showcase what Specsavers has to offer by hosting a presentation on who we are as a company and what they can expect if they choose to commence their optometry career with Specsavers.

The students heard from a number of speakers across the following topics;

  • Changing lives through better sight
  • Specsavers Clinical Placement Program
  • Specsavers Graduate Program & Offer

Each event was supported by team members from the Clinical Services Department who delivered the changing lives through better sight message as well as a graduate from that university who spoke to the students about their individual experience and journey with Specsavers.

The evenings had plenty of food, drinks and networking and wrapped up with a Q&A panel, giving students the opportunity to ask any questions that they have about Specsavers and what a career with Specsavers could look like for them.

The Graduate Team have started holding individual meetings with these final year students to discuss how they can best support them with securing their first role as a newly qualified optometrist with Specsavers.

The Graduate Team look forward to continuing to build relationships with and supporting these final students over this next year.
