About the store:

Situated in the northern suburbs of Perth, Specsavers Whitford is ideally located only 5 minutes from the pristine coastal beaches and only a short drive to Perth’s bustling CBD.

The Specsavers Whitford store is ideally located within Westfield Whitford City shopping centre. Whitford City is Perth’s largest shopping centre and is home to over 240 speciality stores including, Big W, Bunnings Warehouse and Woolworths, leading to increased foot traffic.

The Whitford store itself is 160sqm in size, boasts 9 dispense desks, 4 test rooms, an office, staff room, state of the art OCT technology and over 1150 frames on display. Opened in 2009, the Specsavers Whitford store has built a loyal database of patients over the past 11 years.

Specsavers is on a continual mission to transform eye health in Australia and New Zealand – and we would like you to join us on that mission. Our Transforming Eye Health Strategy is focused on eliminating preventable vision loss and blindness, particularly with diseases such as Glaucoma and Diabetes, through improved prevention, early detection and co-management.

In 2019, we trebled the number of patients we referred for glaucoma and doubled our referrals to support services such as Glaucoma Australia. Our rollout of OCT in every store has resulted in 2.8 million OCT scans conducted and 300,000 visual field tests performed. We are now detecting glaucoma in 1.3% of our patients, which is just below the reported population prevalence of 1.5%. We’ve also launched Keepsight, Australia’s first national diabetic recall program, and registered more than 65,000 Australians, engaging them in regular diabetes eye checks.

If you’re looking to make a genuine impact, and deliver patient-centric, evidence-based preventative eye care and work collaboratively to manage health outcomes, then we urge you to talk to us about how you can join the mission to transform eye health.

This opportunity is not to be missed. For more information, contact Maria Savva, Partner Recruitment Manager, on +61 (0) 401 353 587 or
