The role…

Customer

Our OHA’s are the first person to greet our customers as they enter our store and set the tone for their visit. It is imperative that the OHA has excellent customer service skills with an ability to interact with a diverse of personalities and backgrounds, adapting these skills to a wide range of scenarios.

Clinical

OHA’s aren’t restricted to front of house duties. We believe it’s imperative for our OHA’s to become fully immersed within the world of optics, meaning that OHA’s take full charge of our pre-screening process, focused on performing retinal imaging and OCT examinations.

Commercial

We stock a wide range of frames and accessories, allowing us to ensure our customers are free to browse the best frames in the market until they locate exactly what they want. As an OHA, you may have to provide consultative advice to these customers regarding the variations between different frames, advising on price, frame composition and brand information.

This is a part time position, requiring the successful applicant to work on Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays.
