Careers at IRC
Ivan R. Cammack Optometrists have been serving the people of Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire for 34 years, with a passion for excellence.
These years have been spent honing our craft, arriving at our own brand of patient care, offering comprehensive eyecare to a patient base of over 15000 people.
Our three practices are now embarking on a programme of expansion, adding more availability across our estate.
Optometrist - Part time - 3 days per week
As an Optometrist with Ivan R. Cammack Optometrists you are the master of your examination environment.
With a passion for achieving excellent visual outcomes using all modalities available, you will be confident in articulating your plan for patient care.
You will be able and willing to clearly describe all aspects of patients ocular health, using the comprehensive set of diagnostic equipment provided to make a visit to the practice an impressive, informative and memorable experience. You will be given ample time with each patient (Eye Exams lasting 50 minutes) to fully explore all aspects of the patients visual demands, seeking to make recommendations to enrich the patients’ life through their vision.
Our examination rooms each have;
ZEISS Cirrus 500 OCT
Eidon Topfocal Retinal Camera
Henson 9000 Visual Field Screener
Takagi Slit Lamp and Camera
Medmont Topographer (per practice)
All equipment links to our practice management system, with comprehensive visual records available for all patients. Training will be provided on all equipment as part of an induction programme, led by Mr. Cammack.
You will be encouraged to pursue your clinical interests in areas such as Myopia Management or Dry Eye Management.
As a ZEISS lens partner with access to the full marketplace of suppliers for frames and contact lenses, you can be certain your recommendations are being executed with the very best products available.
You will also benefit from having an experienced team around you, with all dispensing carried out by Dispensing Opticians and will form part of our Optometry team of 9 other colleagues. In total we have 38 colleagues across our three practices and our office.
The vacancy we have can be reasonably flexible, knowing your wishes would be useful in determining how this can fit in with the businesses requirements..
To give you an idea of what this could look like, it is probably more effective to give an outline of what our currently employed Optometrists get up to;
Our Optometrists generally work between two and five days per week. The vacancy we currently have is for three days per week, allowing you to pursue other interests away from the examination room. There may be opportunity in future to add additional days to this arrangement at a later date, if desired, as some of our existing colleagues have.
The majority of our professional staff work across two of our sites, on set days, with set days off. Flexibility to cover holidays etc. is useful if possible but would always be agreed in advance. The vacancy therefore is not practice specific and would involve some ability to move between practices in line with an agreed working pattern. This could be discussed at interview.
Most of our colleagues do some weekend work, only on Saturdays mind. We close Sundays and all Bank Holidays. We would be looking for you to work every other Saturday
There is the option to do some evening work, if desired, on Wednesdays and Thursdays but this is not specific to this vacancy.
Clinics generally begin at 9:00am and end at 17:00, with and hour for lunch.
The starting salary on offer for this position will be between 48-61K (full time equivalent), depending on experience.
Other benefits include;
Professional Fees paid to the GOC and AOP
Generous Staff Discount
Free Parking nearby
Private Medical Healthcare
Ivan R. Cammack Optometrists is a thriving, progressive, Independent group of practices looking to the future.
