Type of opportunity:
Geoff Steven and Sons Opticians are a group of 6 Opticians based in the north east of England. We are currently run by the Steven brothers from our head office in Hexham. We deal with all aspects of being a modern optician, from the retail of glasses and contact lenses to dealing with the NHS.
Summary of Role:
We are looking for a Business Manager to help oversee our group of 6 opticians. The position is temporary for maternity cover, but you would be involved in all aspects of running a £1.7million+ turnover business.
Working very closely with the owners, it is an ideal position for someone wanting to take their first steps into the business world and gain valuable experience. The ideal candidate would have considerable latitude to suggest and implement ideas to improve the running and turnover of the business and so should be creative and very organised. It would involve all aspects of business from dealing with staff, marketing, administration and anything else that helps in running the business. For the first 3 months you would be working with our current Business Manager, before she goes on maternity leave, so full training will be given.
