Optometrist Opportunity in Reading

Situated in close proximity to London and Oxford, the vibrant city of Reading offers many of the benefits of big city living with the added advantages of affordable housing and stunning surrounding countryside. One of the strongest performing economies in Europe, it has become an immensely popular destination for those looking for excellent career opportunities, an exciting lifestyle, and enviable quality of life.

While only a mere 25 minutes away from London by rail, there are plenty of things to do and see in Reading itself. Within its compact central district, you will find a thriving restaurant scene, beautiful riverside, a medieval abbey, and a wealth of bars, comedy clubs, live music venues, theatres and museums. What’s more, the city is known as one of the UK’s top retail destinations, offering an exciting mix of major chains and independent businesses and housing one of Britain’s finest shopping centres, the Oracle Shopping Centre.

Despite being a popular business location, Reading is a surprisingly green city and boasts a number of public parks and gardens, including the award-winning Green Park and the Caversham Court Gardens, which sits on the banks of the Thames and offers stunning views as well as an open air theatre and cinema. Its location on the river Thames has also led to Reading becoming a major water sports destination within the UK, hosting regular rowing regattas and dragon boat races.

With the surrounding countryside of Berkshire, South Oxfordshire and North Hampshire at a short commuting distance, Reading is ideal for those who are looking to combine urban living with spending time in the great outdoors. Does this sound like a great opportunity to you? With so much on offer in Reading, you won’t regret relocating to this dynamic city.
