We are looking for an enthusiastic candidate to join our client, an Opticians based in Dalkeith, who is well presented and can talk to people in a friendly and polite manner. They will be trained to use electronic machines to pre test optical customers, who will be able to explain our offers and promotions to customers.
They will also be able to use our computerised records and appointment system to assist customers making appointments, and will be able to guide customers in their choice of suitable frames and lenses for their glasses purchases. This will give a strong foundation for anyone who wishes to pursue a career in Retail or Customer Service in general, or within the Optics industry in particular.
As well as completing an apprenticeship in Optical Practice Support, you will also have the opportunity to learn about the various different types of eyesight that people who need glasses might have, some learning about how spectacles are actually made, along with some early insights into the kind of things that can sometimes go wrong with eyes.
There are no set qualifications required, but an interest/ qualification in IT and/ or Admin would be considered an advantage. The main requirement is to be keen to learn, and to present yourself well and be able to talk to people in a friendly and polite manner.
