Specsavers Porthcawl

Apprenticeships have helped Specsavers Porthcawl to recruit, develop and retain good quality staff who are a key business asset. The store, which has three apprentices and has employed eight since it opened, holds the Specsavers ‘Platinum Employer’ accreditation for people management.

Most apprentices employed have either stayed and progressed their careers with the store or now work in local hospitals.

Inspiro Learning, in partnership with Cambrian Training Company, delivers Apprenticeships in Retail Skills and works closely with Specsavers Porthcawl on recruitment in the local community.

A focus on staff development enables the store to provide enhanced clinical optometry and audiology services which allows patients to receive care closer to home.
