Regional Support Manager
At 18, I had no intention of going into the optical business – in fact, I’d just finished a Welding and Fabrication NVQ! I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do, but I attended an Optical Express open evening in 2006, and they saw my potential and took me on. I started as an Optical Assistant, then progressed up the career ladder, becoming an Assistant Store Manager. I was promoted to General Manager and worked in Derby, then Nottingham and finally Meadowhall in Sheffield.
My present role is Regional Support Manager – I coach staff and assist the Regional Manager, as well as operating as a dispensing optician when required in the branch. Time flies and I love being able to help patients, as well as developing our employees. Optical Express has supported and sponsored me through my 3 years of study as a dispensing optician. I’ve been accepted for a condensed optometry course, and once I’ve successfully completed it, I’ll become a fully qualified optometrist by 2020 – a fitting date for it!
I aim to continue progressing in the business and am looking forward to combining my management and dispensing optician experience on a more clinical level. At Optical Express, the sky’s the limit!
