Mark Jones Eye Care



Mark Jones Eye Care is a premium family business located in the centre of the wonderful cathedral city of Salisbury. The practice is over 110 years old and Mark Jones is the 4th owner. Since Mark took over the practice has gone from strength to strength and has now doubled in size and capacity. We focus on a high level of care, first class technology, treatments, and equipment, as well as being super fun and friendly.

Our Mission

The mission here at MJEC is simple. Ensure that every patient walks out the practice door feeling like they’ve just had a really special experience. Our patients should feel elated, delighted and inspired.

We allow our team to operate in the best way they see fit to carry out our mission. You get the freedom in your job role to come up with creative ways of solving our patients wants and needs.

Our aim is to continue to grow and develop our offering and become the premier opticians in the region.

Our Culture

As the old cliché goes we win and lose as a team. This means we run a no blame culture and if anything goes wrong we work together as a unit to get the best outcome for our patients.
You’ll enjoy regular team building trips, meals out, trips abroad, wine tastings and more. Any excuse to get together for laugh and have a bit of fun – strictly no work talk allowed

The Opportunity

As an optical assistant you will work alongside our optometrists aiding them with their clinics, conducting contact lens teaches, assisting our dispensing opticians with frame styling and other varied tasks. While the main role encompasses reception duties such as booking eye and hearing Care clinics plus responding to various enquiries and optical emergencies from the general public and health care professionals.

You will gain a lot of knowledge about the anatomy of the eye and the pathologies we encounter in practice, alongside the technical, maths and practical side of making and fitting spectacles and contact lenses.

About You

Bringing your customer service A-game is obviously a prerequisite. But what we really want is someone who is open to new ideas and ways of working, someone who will bring their own style and passions to the table, and most importantly the right attitude and desire to work as part of a team.

Ideally you will have at least a C in GCSE Maths, English and Science. Or any relevant optical experience.


From £19,000 pro rata depending on experience

This position is part time, 3 days a week including two Saturdays per month.
