Case Study: Value


Specsavers story

James and Natalie have been employed at Specsavers in Cheltenham since 2017 initially in roles that were often difficult to recruit for and tended to have a higher staff turnover than average. Their dedication to the roles meant that Specsavers lowered their recruitment costs whilst gaining reliable and loyal employees within their team.


Over the last few years James’ role has developed even further supporting the Community Engagement Manager with promotional and community-based work, which has led to even more opportunities for Specsavers including PR coverage and recognition from Cheltenham’s local MP with a nomination for Cheltenham’s Constituency Responsible Business Champion.

“Their attitude is just amazing, they want to work, they want to do well and help you.”

Melanie, Retail Director, Specsavers


James has just been an absolute inspiration for everybody who works here and for other local businesses and people in the community. He’s developing all sorts of new skills; he started working in our lab but is now even doing marketing work.
