Optometrist Oxford (Maternity Leave Cover)

Hi! 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.

For our store in Oxford we are looking for an Optometrist (part time, fixed term contract for maternity leave cover)! Are you ready to make a real impact?

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 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 always 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 testroom, 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.

All our colleagues are unique and add their personal strength into their roles and teams. However, we do share some common interests and characteristics; 

  • We are curious about people;

  • We love to learn new stuff;

  • We get energy from interaction with people;

  • We get overexcited once a new product drop has landed in store;

  • We are all different people with our own experiences and quirks, so please #comeasyouare.

What Do We Offer?

  • Discount codes for free and discounted pairs of opticals and sunnies; 
  • Part time contract for 1 year (maternity leave cover); 
  • 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;
  • Sign up for the Cycle to Work scheme;
  • Unlimited access to our internal learning portal.
