What tips would you give to others who want to become a dispensing optician at LFO?
Kerri - Come in with your eyes wide open and be prepared to learn more than you think you’ll need too. The opportunities are massive.
Becky - Get yourself into a great independent optician where you’re well supported. Then undertake a distance learning course with ABDO college. I thoroughly enjoyed my time training and feel it’s the best way to learn alongside working in practice.
Why should a Dispensing Optician aspire to work at Lynne Fernandes Optometrists?
Liam - I moved to LFO as I felt there were opportunities here, that I knew I wasn’t going to have access to in my previous role. They are always transparent and helpful and more than happy to give advice, arrange training for you and listen to your ideas and suggestions.
Tim - I wouldn’t have had the freedom to implement ideas as quickly elsewhere. For example, I've been trusted to shape our frame collections so soon after qualifying
Kerri - So many, there is no ceiling to development at LFO. I joined to be Dispensing Optician manager of a small practice. Over 15 years, I've been allowed and encouraged to develop to be Operations Manager of a great local independent company that's recognised nationally. The excitement about coming to work is still there...watch this space
Beth - I've worked in management roles for national chains previously. This is the best, most enjoyable position I've had. I'm supported, encouraged and looked after. Cut me open and I have LFO in my heart
Becky – Being company trainer: I’ve been given objectives, but I’m trusted to train in the way I feel best. I've earned this trust after 15 years: first as a trainee DO, qualifying, managing Wells Road, then Gloucester Road, now to my current role.
It’s a fantastic place to work, I enjoy every day, and would recommend it to anyone who has a passion for optics.
At LFO, we passionately believe the professionalism and enthusiasm of great Dispensing Opticians is vital to our business.
