Vacancy for UK qualified lead optometrist

Are you offering excellence in your field and want to make a difference over on a beautiful Caribbean island?

A long established, four practice, independent optometry/ophthalmology group in the Caribbean seeks an experienced lead optometrist for a one year renewable contract.

The group has a full generating and finishing optical lab.

Applicant must have minimum five years experience and be a "high energy" driving force willing to develop the ophthalmology and the optometry service level presently offered by the company. The lead optometrist will be under the immediate business direction of the operations manager and CEO. A positive ‘can do’ and easy to work with attitude is essential.

A clinical ophthalmology service and private eye surgery facility is also an integral part of the company, so the optometrist works along side this service and assists the ophthalmologist in developing this side of the business.

The practices have a very broad client base and demographic, so the ability to converse easily with a wide range of ages and types is essential. Exemplary and very clear English language skills are essential.

Applicants with excellent skills and experience in contact lens fitting, particularly scleral and kerataconus lenses, would be very favourably considered as the company is keen to more fully develop this service.

The practices function with a PMS system, ability to use this and basic IT skills are required.

Flight, company car, accommodation and work permit will be provided as part of the package. Salary level to be discussed.
