Optimum Rx Lens Specialists Careers

Tinting Technician

Professional, Ownership, Passionate, Innovative.

At Optimum we pride ourselves in providing the ophthalmic market with high quality lens coating services as well as the manufacture and supply of prescription lenses with excellent turnaround and customer service. These four values are at the heart of our business and everything we do.

Currently undergoing a period of sustained growth, we are looking to recruit a new member to join our team at this exciting time.

Duties and Responsibilities

You will be joining our expanding Tinting department reporting to the department manager.

Your role involves working in a fast paced production environment which will include working varied shift patterns. You will need to have a keen eye for colours and have an interest in mixing them. You will also need to follow standard operating procedures and be able to inspect lens quality and problem solve as necessary.

The ability to display a high level of attention to detail, work as a part of a team and on your own initiative goes without saying.

Experience and Knowledge

This role would be ideal for an Optical Technician that has ophthalmic training but experience is not necessary. Enthusiasm, a willingness to learn and the ability to produce work of the highest standard is essential. In return, we will offer a comprehensive induction and training schedule to kick-start your career with us.

In addition, we will actively encourage and support you by offering the opportunity to gain recognised qualifications to become a valuable asset to our growing team.
