We’re delighted to share that we have given a permanent job to the optical assistant who first joined us on work experience from school in May 2016.
We have appointed Sadie Bradbury to the role of part-time optical assistant at our Woodseats branch following a successful year long apprenticeship.
Sadie, who lives in Woodseats, said: “I enjoy working here and I’ve learnt a lot from the manager Cara Smith and Rachel Ireson, who is another optical assistant, as they’ve both been here for around 20 years each and they’re very good teachers.”
Having earned her diploma in level two business administration, Sadie is now looking forward to learning more about different lenses.
“We all get on really well and a lot of our tasks require good communication and team work. I get to do a lot of hands-on practical work here which I might not have had the opportunity to do had I worked for a chain optometrist,” she added.
Sadie will continue to work with other optical assistants Rachel and Kate Wilson at the practice, where her day to day tasks include manning the reception desk, dispensing glasses, selling frames, contact lens sales, assisting customers and cutting lenses.
