As a professional, family-run practice, we are proud to be have now been established for 15 years. Over this time, our goal has never changed in so much that we continue to offer our patients gold-standard optometric expertise with state-of-the-art equipment, premium range of spectacles and sunglasses, and second-to-none care, that we offer here in the heart of Kings Hill. Fortunately, we now need new optometrists to help continue to provide the excellent eye care our patients have come to expect.

Working with us means the best of all worlds

We believe you became an optometrist because you wanted a career that combined your passion for scientific innovation with patient care and the ability to enjoy a great work-life balance, right? We are confident that Kings Hill Opticians can offer you all that and more, at a friendly, independent practice where your work will be supported, and your skills nurtured by our well-established teams.

We are not just looking for a 'refractionist,' we really want our optometrists to offer more to our patients who seek us out following their previous optical experiences. With testing times in excess of 40 minutes, which has always been our standard testing time, we are confident that you can do a lot more than asking "Is it better than 1 or 2?"

This opportunity is open to any individual, regardless of experience, and will really suit someone who wants to learn and deliver clinical excellence. A kind note to our newly qualified colleagues, this post is not for the most experienced optometrist, but a post for those who want to build their career in a clinical excellence.
