Start your career with a friend in Newcastle


Why not start your optometry career in the beautiful Newcastle region with a friend or friends! Take advantage of our ‘Go with a Friend’ initiative which offers generous financial incentives to newly qualified optometrists who are interested in banding together in pairs or trios to complete their graduate employment in practices close by or within the same practice.

By relocating together, this initiative enables you to comfortably make a move to a new location with the support network of your optometry friends. This further extends the support network that will be provided to you as a new graduate as part of the Specsavers Graduate Program as you step out of your comfort zone and explore and establish yourself in a new community.

Just a short 160kms north of Sydney and Australia’s seventh largest city, Newcastle is known for its stunning beaches and coastal walk stretching from Nobbys Beach through to Merewether Beach. Specsavers stores in the Newcastle area will provide you with a variety of patients, strong working relationships with local health providers, top of the range equipment and the opportunity to become part of a laid back community.

Current ‘Go with a Friend’ opportunities include:

  • Charlestown
  • East Maitland
  • Glendale
  • Jesmond
  • Kotara
  • Morisset
  • Mt Hutton
  • Salamander Bay

To express your and/or your friend’s interest in any of the above opportunities, contact Charlotte Barlow, Specsavers Graduate Recruitment Consultant, on 0427 066 342 or to find out more or to organise a visit.
