The Careers in Eyecare campaign will promote careers across the sector

Continuing support for Careers in Eyecare

Careers in Eyecare, the award-winning cross-sector initiative to highlight the range of careers in eyecare and eyewear, has received a boost as key sponsors continue their support for the campaign.

The award-winning campaign from the Association of British Dispensing Opticians (ABDO) is entering its third year with support from Specsavers, Stepper (UK) Limited and Woodspeen Training.Along with partnerships with ABDO College, the Worshipful Company of Spectacle Makers and Youth Employment UK, this will allow the campaign to continue its outreach to young people, parents, careers advisors and those looking to switch careers or upskill.

The campaign is active through its website,, where you can find career profiles and features about what it is really like to work in a range of eyecare careers. From ophthalmic assistant to ophthalmologist, you can also learn about business, retail, fashion, design, science, healthcare and technology careers from entry level upwards. Follow the campaign on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

Nick Walsh
of ABDO says, “Award-winning Careers in Eyecare is all about raising awareness of great career opportunities in the eyecare and eyewear industries. The future of these industries is dependent upon upcoming new talent to keep them buoyant and fresh. Support from these great forward-thinking partners helps us to increase the range of help and resources that we can offer to students, teachers and careers advisers. We look forward to working with them and other companies who would like to become sponsors too.”
