Our unique mobile practice needs an enthusiastic optometrist who can fit in to our small but perfectly formed team

If you have great clinical and personal skills combined with enthusiasm for learning the business and marketing side of independent practice (oh... and a sense of humour!), this is the opportunity for you.

Tomlinson Mobile Opticians was established in 1991, providing optometry services to the rural villages of East Yorkshire. We work from a purpose built mobile practice, equipped with an impressive level of technology: digital imaging, video slit-lamp, auto-phoropter, Easyfield field analyser and more. We offer qualified dispensing support but expect our optometrists to have an interest in and a working knowledge of dispensing. We have a small but growing contact lens business. We carry out some domiciliary work, predominantly to private patients in their own homes and a small number of private care homes. We have a relaxed appointment schedule: typically 11-13 examinations a day or 6-8 domiciliary visits, and we offer you the chance to work for a patient base who genuinely appreciate what you do for them. 

Our practice is built and has grown over 25+ years on the ethos of doing the job better and adding value to the patient experience. The current owner is looking to semi-retire, while keeping an interest in managing the business, offering the opportunity for a candidate with an entrepreneurial outlook to undergo an accelerated training in management and marketing with the possibility of partnership and/or eventual succession.

Your working week will be approx 30 hours over 4 days including Saturdays. We are happy to negotiate a package that includes up to 8 weeks annual leave with a performance related bonus that will offer a real incentive to get involved in building on our success. For the right candidate there is the opportunity for partnership/eventual succession. 

If all of this sounds like the reason you joined the profession and you’re ready to step off the High Street treadmill, email John Tomlinson: optomjob2017@gmail.com or call in confidence on 07950 267913
