Specsavers supports students

St Austell branch of Specsavers supports students through education

01 Oct 2015 by Emily McCormick

The St Austell branch of Specsavers has supported four practitioners through their education to become qualified optometrists.

To date the practice has recruited four A-Level students from local colleges, employing them at the weekends and supporting them through university and their pre-reg period. Wanting to continue this work, the practice is calling on young students in the area to consider optometry as a career option.

Director of the St Austell store, Eric Barkhuysen, said: "A business is only as good as its people and at Specsavers we pride ourselves in recruiting the best talent out there.

"As a practice, we have a history of providing young students from local colleges a chance to develop a career in optics. These four staff members have helped to make the great team of 27 at St Austell even stronger."
