Careers

We are looking for talented ‘visionary’ people to join our fantastic team. With a long heritage in the town, Armitage Opticians is part of a small but rapidly growing independent portfolio of opticians, now owned and run by husband and wife team Sohail and Abra Khan. With  two young boys this really is a family focused business and we put our clients at the very heart of everything we do. Sohail and Abra’s progressive approach can be felt at every touchpoint in the service offered to clients.

Join our team

We are a close knit, supportive team, sharing ideas across all 4 practices in the group and with easy and regular access to and support from the Directors.

With exciting growth plans over the next 10 years, we can offer great career progression and planning, advice and support for ongoing professional development.

As a family run business, we know just how crucial an excellent work life balance is so you spend the right amount of time with loved ones and ‘doing your thing’ outside of work.

Armitage opticians are part of a group of independent opticians, with significant growth plans over the next 10 years. Owned by husband and wife duo Sohail and Arbra Khan, both qualified optometrists, their vision is to retain all the service and personal touches of an independent and to leverage the buying power of a large group to enhance frame choice, contact lens trials, children eye services and above all technology to stay at the cutting edge of eye health and  vision care, 

Our Customer-Centric Service

  • Introduced state of the art eye OCT testing technology, to give the customer the most comprehensive eye health check available
  • Longer appointment time, we spend more time with our customers in order to thoroughly check eye health and to focus on any changes in vision and the impact this may be having on lifestyles 
  • Early detection focus, spending time to spot any potential eye conditions
  • Focus on a customer’s style preferences, offering sit-down dispensing and taking time to look at frame styles and offering a great choice of colours and shapes
  • Contact lens free trial, encouraging customers who may be unsure of whether or not to try contact lenses, we help them every step of the way
  • Free children’s eye test, evidence shows 1.6 million school age children in the UK have an undetected eye condition so we are keen to encourage parents to book an appointment for their child. Many parents would also like to understand more about contact lens suitability for their children, particularly for sports and we fit lenses to children as young as 8.
  • Easy payment and membership plans to offer payment option and loyalty rewards
