When you join Bayfields Opticians and Audiologists as our Optometrist, you are joining an independent business.  Although we are national, we are not a huge chain which means we understand the importance of local relationships and the power of choice.  We aim to deliver obsessively great service to each and every one of our clients which is at the core of what we do.  We have the latest diagnostic equipment, the latest technological advances in contact lenses, spectacle lenses and frames, and the latest fashions.

At Bayfields, we are passionate about the services we provide our clients in Newcastle Under Lyme.  Our eye tests are so thorough which is why we only employ highly trained Optometrists to provide our clients with the best quality care and getting to know your clients in more depth.  Our 45-minute eye test is very comprehensive and gives you time to really understand your Clients’ needs and lifestyle and then recommend solutions that fit best to that lifestyle by following the GOC and College of Optometry guidelines.

Alongside having your Optometry Degree and being GOC registered, you will have excellent communication and listening skills with the ability to build strong relationships with your team members, peers, and clients. Accuracy and attention to detail are vital for this role in line with being able to make clear recommendations and clinical decisions. 

If you are ready for a new and exciting Optometrist opportunity, then we would love to hear from you!
