About the Role

This is a new and exciting opportunity to take a lead role in shaping and delivering modern and top quality ophthalmology services. Our virtual clinic is one important part of how we are improving the service and care we provide to our patients. You will deliver virtual consultations for Refractive Surgery to prospective patients and be responsible for the day-to-day running of the virtual clinic, ensuring we meet our ambitious conversion targets. The role is home based and could be full or part time.

About You

We are looking for a commercially aware optometrist with a passion for providing the highest quality customer services to join our multi-disciplinary clinical teams. You will of course hold a current GOC registration as a fully qualified optometrist and be experienced in working in refractive surgery. Whilst you don’t need to have previous experience in delivering virtual consultations, it’s important that you have successfully worked in an environment which balances providing high quality care to patients, with achieving commercial targets.

All because of the brilliant people who work here! We want to do the best for our people. We invest in creating the conditions for your success, whether that’s a modern and inviting place to work in, state of the art equipment, the right tools to do your job or great rewards for the success you bring. As well as the fundamentals like competitive salary, great holiday and pension, we also offer private health cover, free eye surgeries for staff and a discount for friends and family, free counselling and physio and access to thousands of discounts from all the big (and some small) names on the high street.
