About us

We’re Ace & Tate and we make glasses. It sounds fairly simple, and that’s the whole point. We’re here to inject a good dose of common sense into our industry by making well-designed, quality eyewear accessible to everyone. Great fits that last, for all eyes.

We’re out to shake up the industry with bold new perspectives on all-things eyewear. Are you ready to make a real impact as an optometrist in our store in Oxford (full-time or part-time) and support Ace&Tate's mission of becoming a more sustainable company every day?

We are looking for you, if you:

  • Are a registered GOC optometrist with more than one year experience post-registration. 
  • Have extensive dispensing knowledge of lenses and other optical products;
  • Are customer friendly and service minded.

The role of the Optometrist

Our optometrists provide the highest level of eye care and play an integral part in customer experience. Next to conducting quality eye tests, dispensing lenses and adjusting frames to fit perfectly, they also support and train the rest of the team on all things optics. We want our optometrists and our customers to have a great experience with each eye test, so we make sure this is reflected in the way we manage our diaries

Coffee or call?

You’re welcome to come by for a coffee and a chat in one of our stores. While you’re there, check out our equipment in the test room, try some of our frames and experience the atmosphere.

If you prefer a call with our Head Optom or Regional Manager, we can arrange that too. We’d love to tell you more about our way of working.

What is on offer?

  • Discount codes for free and discounted pairs of opticals and sunnies 
  • The possibility of a monthly bonus 
  • No company uniforms
  • Continuous Professional Development: we provide yearly CPD to cover all points required for the year
  • Wellbeing; healthy snacks, a collab with ClassPass and the opportunity to book in free sessions with a certified psychologist
  • 28 days holiday entitlement and up to 33 days after two years of service (based on full time employment)
  • Pension scheme from the People’s Pension
  • Unlimited access to our internal learning portal.

At Ace & Tate you contribute not only to the company’s mission, but also to our Responsibility mission of being committed to being a more socially & environmentally responsible business, every day.

As a certified B-Corp, we take careful consideration of the impact of the decisions we make at work on the planet and on people and we ask you to commit to this as well and Think it Through. In that way, together, we can continue our goal of becoming a more responsible business.
