Job Description

At Vision Express the role of an Optical Apprentice offers more responsibility and involvement than your normal retail apprenticeship. Our programme is designed to introduce you to optical retailing and our aim is to grow future talent for our business by getting the best apprentices on board by paying over the national minimum wage.


What will the apprentice be doing?

The beauty of this role is that no two days are ever the same. With the support of your store manager and our in-house training team we will give you all the tools you need to support your development throughout the programme.

When in store your role will include:

  • Bringing our Purpose and Values to life
  • Learning how to select the right products for our customer's needs
  • Providing them with a tailored experience

What training will the apprentice take and what qualification will the apprentice get at the end?

During your apprenticeship you will receive regular training sessions while working in store. These are monthly and in some cases two weekly. You’ll be supported every step of the way by dedicated training experts who are employed by Vision Express. Through a structured learning pathway, you will achieve a Level 2 Optical Assistant qualification, equivalent to 5 A*-C 9/4 GCSEs (including GCSE English and maths if you don’t already have these or equivalent).

What is the expected career progression after this apprenticeship?

We know you matter and that is why it is our commitment to make this a job you enjoy by recognising your achievements and encouraging you to be involved in shaping our success. Our Game Changing leaders will support your career with excellent training and development opportunities. There are limitless horizons to suit your careers goals whether that be developing into a management role or progressing into professional optometry.
