Investment in local hearing centre staff

Specsavers’ Hearing Centres across Angus, Tayside and Perthshire have invested £30,000 in their teams to ensure they are delivering the best possible customer service.

Five members of staff from stores in Forfar, Arbroath, Dundee and Perth, have enrolled on the Diploma of Higher Education: Hearing Aid Audiology course at Queen Margaret University in Musselburgh.

At the end of the two-year course, the students will be qualified Hearing Aid Dispensers, and will be able to add to the expertise already in each store.

Their in-store training that goes towards their qualification will be supervised by David Parsons, director of the company’s Dundee store.

He said: “At Specsavers we believe in growing and nurturing our team so the investment we have made in our five employees demonstrates our commitment to providing the best customer service possible. We will support each student in store, helping them to develop and enhance the skills they learn.”
