As a successful small local business, part of our growth has come about from investing in training.
Being part of the local community is very important to me.
This year I would like to give back something to our community and I have created a full-time apprenticeship position
at Coton & Hamblin.
The role leads to a Level 2 Optical Assistant.
The role includes:
Welcoming all patients to the practice and checking all admin related to their appointment.
Ensuring data protection procedures and policies are followed.
Excellent communication skills as, daily you will be interacting with other staff, patients, and other health care professionals as required. This may be face to face, over the phone, letter and via email.
Pre-testing of patients using the Optomap Retinal Imaging system, 3D OCT scans and visual fields as directed by the appointment and the Optometrist.
Helping patients choose spectacles which they are delighted with. Choosing the right spectacle frame is an art – knowing what suits face shapes and which colours will be complimentary is a great skill and recommending the best lenses to offer optimum vision and visual comfort.
The role requires someone who is:
Warm, friendly and welcoming - to get along well with fellow staff and also be approachable and considerate towards all patients
Genuine and honest
