Specsavers is offering a $225,000 salary package for three optometrist positions located in regional towns across the country, with more to come in the new year.
The packages, which are the largest ever offered by the business, are more than double what is available for roles in the chain’s metropolitan stores.
Located in Taree, NSW, Berri, SA, and Emerald, QLD, all three practices boast a team of supportive staff, two test rooms and the latest equipment, including optical coherence tomography (OCT).
“We’re really excited to offer these fantastic packages to encourage optometrists to consider the move to a regional location,” Mr Raj Sundarjee, director of professional recruitment at Specsavers, said.
“We’ve had an extraordinary response to the opportunities in Berri, Emerald and Taree, and we will be offering additional packages for other regional locations in the new year. Those who are interested in taking up these opportunities should get in touch now to gain advance notice of where and when these new sets of locations will come online.”
The regional lifestyle that accompanies each of these roles is a key element. All three practices are located either within driving distance or a short flight from capital cities and offer flexible rosters.
The company is also promising these roles have the potential for fast-tracked career progression. Applicants are expected to have two years of clinical experience in either Australia or New Zealand, as well as a proven ability to exceed key performance indicators.
