When it comes to starting your own business, one of the biggest challenges you can face is having to go it alone.
But not for a Specsavers partner.
The beauty of a partnership with Specsavers is that even though you own your own business, you’re never truly alone.
All our audiology businesses are located within an established Specsavers Optical store. This enables you to introduce audiology to a new audience, many of whom would never have encountered audiology before, and to start them on their journey to recognising the value of their hearing. It also means you have access to a support network from day one, who are there to be your cheer squad and your sounding board – people who are invested in seeing you succeed and grow your audiology business.
Most optical stores are owned and operated by an Optical Partner, who manages the clinical side of the optical business, and a Retail or Dispensing Partner, who manages the retail aspects of the optical business.
For Ingrid Wellacott, audiology partner at Specsavers Papanui, having her Optical Partners beside her made the world of difference, especially when launching her business at the start of the global pandemic.
“Their support throughout induction and when opening has been amazing, it really feels as though they have my best interests at heart and they’re genuinely excited about my journey,” she said.
“I have a great working relationship with my Optical Partners,” she says.
Iris Shin, audiology partner at Albany and Silverdale, says having mutual respect and common goals with her partners has made the transition to business ownership less lonely.
“I truly feel like we are one team,” she says. “My partners have such great spirit and commitment to the business. They are so excited about having audiology within the stores and have been very supportive of my business.
“I know they will go above and beyond to help me as I grow my business in the coming years.”
