If you’d like to find out why you should join our team, stay right here.

Everyone’s looking for a work life that just fits. Somewhere you’ll be heard, your hard work will be seen, and you get to do something genuinely good.

And, when you spend as much time working as you do, that seems like a pretty reasonable thing to want.

At Bayfields, ever since we started in Yorkshire, we’ve worked hard to be a team you’ll be excited to work with. We’re proudly transparent, committed to fairness, and we know a fantastic idea is just as likely to come from a new starter as a board member.

It’s no surprise that we’ve attracted so many former employees from the large optical chains. We shape our business around our people, not the other way around. And, as we see our family grow to more than 20 locations, we’re going to prove that you can be a well-known name and give our team respect and opportunity.

Royston Bayfield
Founder and CEO

Think you might be a good fit?
Let us convince you.

What's the main reason for you to join Bayfields? To be honest, we'd feel a little embarrassed if there was just one. But here are a few of our personal favourites:

Benevolence days
Paid time to contribute to make a positive change in your community, your way

Training and development
We want you here for the long haul. Which means making sure that we get you where you want to be

Flexible working
We hire people because they're different, and that often means their schedules are too

Birthday holidays
Taken when you want —though we recommend the day after

Email blackout days
Some days just need a step away from the inbox

Quarterly roadshows
Get together with your colleagues from around the country, share ideas and have some fun

Weekly updates from Royston
Nobody likes relying on whispers, we'll make sure you're always in the loop

You'll also get a generous salary and holiday entitlement, company pension, private healthcare options, vouchers to spend at Bayfields including a free pair of glasses or sunglasses every single year, cycle to work scheme, high street voucher incentives, and discounts on everything from broadband to holidays.

If it's relevant to your role, we'll also cover your GOC and professional indemnity fees.


Representation matters

We’re incredibly grateful to have ideas and skills from a range of backgrounds in the Bayfields family. Diversity is absolutely essential to find the best ideas —and offer the best service.

If you are a part of an underrepresented group within our industry, we would like to offer you a warm welcome, and absolutely encourage you to apply for our available roles.

We don’t have a defined list of things we need. Because people don’t always fit neatly into boxes and recruitment shouldn’t be a science. If you’re excited about working with good people to make life for our clients and their families a bit better, then we’re off to a great start.
