Locum Optometrists Wanted

The Prison Opticians Company deliver opticians services to prisons across England and Wales. Our optometry service is unique because we have prisoners working at the heart of organisation making spectacles for other prisoners which helps to reduce re-offending.

If you are a locum optometrist and interested in working in a prison setting then please contact us using the form below. In particular, we are currently looking to recruit optometrists to work in the NewcastleSuffolk and Dorset areas.

Working in a prison setting is quite different from working in your standard high street practice and comes with unique challenges. It is, however, an incredibly rewarding role, and we will offer you the support you need to make sure you are not phased by the change in setting. We also ensure you fully understand our guidance notes which cover all of the common questions that arise when working in a prison setting.
