Why choose a career at Optical Express | Danielle | Optometrist

Over ten years working at Optical Express, experienced Optometrist, Danielle, spoke to us about why you should consider a career at Optical Express.

Why choose a career at Optical Express?

Danielle describes Optical Express as, “they’re fantastic and offer lots of different opportunities for the optometrists.” At Optical Express we offer opportunities to our colleagues so they can reach their full potential and grow within their role. We provide support and training such as the Independent Prescribing (IP) course which enables our optometrists to provide “better health care” for our patients.

What advice would you give to someone thinking of joining Optical Express?

“The areas that you will grow as an individual, as an optometrist, and the support level that we have around as well is of a very high standard” said Danielle when speaking of the amount of training that is provided to new optometrists at Optical Express. All of our staff have access to the full clinical services team from their very first day which enables them to get in contact with any questions or concerns that they may have as we are a #oneteam organisation.

Is there a work life balance at Optical Express?

As well as an experienced optometrist, Danielle is also a full time mother to two wonderful children and so having a work life balance is very important to her. Danielle has a “lovely work life balance” and is able to “spend quality time with her children and also have a few days in work”. We offer an array of flexible working patterns that support your family or lifestyle commitments.

Would you recommend a career at Optical Express?

“Yes absolutely” said Danielle. The clinical diversity and the unrivalled training and development that Optical Express offers to their team members is unheard of. Danielle commented, “working alongside wonderful teams in relation to ophthalmology” and being “able to progress through the years” was a key factor in why she would recommend a career at Optical Express.
