Anjal Jimon, 23, has just recently become a fully qualified optician, and started at Specsavers, Scarborough 18 months ago whilst studying for her qualification.

“I applied for my role at Specsavers in 2021 and didn’t know what to expect, but I was so excited to learn and kickstart my career in optometry.

"Being a pre-registration optician at Scarborough has been an eye-opening experience as I have learnt and developed so much since I started,” said Anjal.

“It was a challenging time due to being assessed and examined while working full-time and getting used to the technology and the processes in store.

"However, it has been extremely rewarding, knowing that I am making a difference to people’s lives by helping them to see better.

"I cannot thank my lovely team at Scarborough enough, they’ve been so supportive and uplifting during this whole journey.”
