In 1997 Vision Express became part of leading international optical retail group GrandVision NV. Operating over 6000 stores in 44 countries across the globe, GrandVision has almost 31,000 employees.
GrandVision’s commitment to long-term investment and growth will open up even more opportunities for career development. And, although we remain a distinct brand, our close association with GrandVision means that these opportunities will not be limited to the UK.
We’ve a lot to offer our optical assistants. But we ask for a lot in return. That’s not to say you need optical experience, although a background in retail or customer service would be an advantage. What you do need though is a positive attitude, enthusiasm, an engaging personality and a love of talking to people.
If you can help ensure the customer journey is as welcoming and as seamless as possible, take a look at our latest Optical Assistant opportunities.
You’ve got some supervisory or team leadership experience. But you’ve also got ambition. We’re looking for someone who combines commercial awareness with excellent organisational skills and the ability to thrive in a busy, customer-focused environment. You must also be able to recommend the right products for each individual customer and have a personality which is charismatic and engaging.
So why not take a look at the latest team leader roles we have available.
A different kind of retail challenge
Your overall aim will be to create a memorable customer experience, but you’ll obviously have a big impact on the performance and profitability of your store too. This means your commercial flair must be combined with retail management experience and the ability to make the most of every opportunity.

Make every experience memorable
You’ll have the opportunity to make a real difference across all areas of a busy store, where everyone is focused on the delivery of a unique and memorable customer experience.

Who you’ll work with
At the heart of everything we do are three behaviours which are shared by everyone at Vision Express, whatever their role. As they are key to the delivery of the best possible customer experience, they have made us what we are.
We’re passionate about service, our products and our workplace. We’re positive, enthusiastic and engaging. We always put our customers first and put 100% into making sure they look and feel great.
Providing a genuine, caring service, we make everyone feel welcome. We engage customers with warmth, sincerity and expertise – taking a real interest in their individual needs and taking time to explain our service and products.
Without seamless teamwork, we just couldn’t deliver the outstanding level of customer service for which we’re known. We respect professional standards and each other. We always do what we say we’ll do and help out wherever we can. – less
