Full-time Dispenser - Melbourne, Australia

At Kiddies Eye Care, we are committed to working with families, schools, doctors and other professionals to ensure the best possible outcome for every child. We understand that 80% of what a child learns is through their vision. Parents often try to do the right thing and have their child's vision tested, only to be let down by poorly fitted and ill advised frame recommendations. Kiddies Eye Care aims to provide parents with the best understanding of what their babies and children need. 

Kiddies Eye Care is an appointment only clinic, which offers proper fitting for every child by an experienced optometrist or frame specialist. We have one of the biggest ranges in babies and children spectacle sizes, colours and choices. 

Given the fast growing of our businesses, we are now seeking a full-time Dispenser. 

What are we looking for?
- A motivated, quick thinking and very capable dispenser 
- Able to adjust, repair and fit lenses into metal and acetate frames
- Able to identify and dot up multifocals 
- Have a good knowledge about lens types is a must (CR surfacing and HOYA especially)
- Contact lens teaches are a bonus, but not a must
- This role involves answering phones, selecting and selling glasses and delivering excellent customer service as most of our patients are children and we must get it perfect
- A good communicator with excellent skills in building rapport, converting and retaining customers. 
- Must want to make an effort to remember our patients and follow up on their individual needs and requests
- Cert IV in Optical Dispensing or similar is preferred
- Must want to work in a happy team environment and be quick thinking and adaptable to change
- Good computer skills and a keen eye for detail
- A strong worth ethic, while also being able to contribute to creating a collaborative and fun environment
- Demonstrate the capacity to communicate well with children, parents and staff.

This is a fantastic opportunity for an experienced Optical Dispenser to work full-time with no late night or Sunday work.

If this sounds like you, we would love to hear from you!
