At Boots Opticians we recognise that our people are key to delivering our ambition to become the world's best opticians, so we offer a number of extra benefits and incentives on top of your basic salary.
We pay our people competitively and aim to make sure you can earn more and more as your career develops.
For all practice based customer-facing roles there's a variable bonus designed to reward levels of customer care, sales and company profits.
We offer a flexible and affordable pension arrangement to employees and, provided you’re aged between 16 and 65, you can join a market-competitive defined contribution scheme.
Not surprisingly, one of our most popular benefits – a generous employee discount in purchases in Boots Health and Beauty stores and on-line and Opticians practices. In Boots Health and Beauty stores and on-line you’ll save 22.5% on Boots branded products and 12.5% for non-Boots branded products. In Boots Opticians, you’ll get a free eye test and save a massive 70% on 3 pairs of glasses per year. Plus we will give you discount vouchers for your friends and family to use in our practices.
Our Optometrists and Practice Managers are entitled to 25 days’ holiday (24 in Scotland) per year building to a maximum of 30 days’ (29 in Scotland) with service. Other roles are entitled to 22 days’ holiday (21 in Scotland) per year building to a maximum of 30 days’ (29 days’ in Scotland) with service. And if you choose not to take your full entitlement, Optometrists can ‘sell’ back to the company up to 5 or 10 days’ holiday (depending on your entitlement).
We give you a choice of over 100 great savings and discounts for you and your family to enjoy on a huge range of products and services including childcare vouchers, health insurance, travel, sports and fitness, electrical products, insurance and finance, toys and children’s activities.
We offer to reimburse all of the General Optical Council's fees for retention of registration and College fees for pre-reg supervisors, provided you work exclusively for Boots Opticians.
A confidential employee assistance programme is available through Positive People Company (PPC). In addition the Professional Services Department are on hand to provide support to all staff regarding clinical issues.
