What is it like working at Bayfields

We want to be the most satisfying job you’ll ever have.

From our daily solutions meetings, where we can collaborate and crowdsource amazing ideas from across our entire Bayfields family, to certifying you on the latest vision and hearing technologies, you’ll notice the difference from your first day. Dozens of different approaches, both big and small, that just feel like the place you’ve always wanted to work.


And, if you ever feel differently, we want to hear about it. So we can listen and change. People come first with us, and they always will.
Our vision is to improve the lives of over a million people through exceptional care and the warmest service. We’d love for you to help us get there.

Our Vision

Our vision is to build a world-class brand centred around client unique lifestyles, which means that we don't just plan to raise the bar for technical excellence, but also for a personal level of service for both optometry and audiology.

Our mission is to deliver over one million eye and hearing care exams — and make the lives of each of those people easier, comfier and better.

Ways of Working

Everything we do works towards providing an absolutely exceptional level of service to our clients. It's something of an obsession.
We deliver it by giving you the best of both worlds: the autonomy, individual practice focus and freedom to spend time with clients that comes with being an independent, and the central support with finance, people, tech and marketing you get from an established, proven group.
We'll always be collaborating closely with you to find ways to improve and tailor our journey even more closely to our clients' unique lifestyles and needs.
It's so important to us to keep our family feel and close community links, combining our world-class processes and resources with our truly independent heart.
