Simon Callaghan | Optometrist

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Paul Smith from Prospect Health for all his help and support in securing me a new role over the past few months. Job hunting can be a stressful process but I found it relatively easy with the help of Paul. He was excellent, he listened to my needs and preferences and then organised interviews for me straight away. He was with me throughout the whole process. It was very reassuring to know he was there should I have any questions or concerns. I would highly recommend him to my friends and other colleagues should they need to change roles in the future.

Daniel Read | Dispensing Optriciian

Jacques, I am writing to reiterate my thanks for your part in my new job at BBR. From the beginning you were positive and helpful, managing to convince me to consider a new job at a time when I was not looking for any opportunities. I think that you liaised well between Nick and myself and I always felt that I was kept up to date and was aware of the support that was available to me from yourself. You kept in touch throughout the process and seemed interested in my personal outcome and seemed to take on board the difficulties that I faced with moving jobs.

Sunny | Optometrist

Jacques, I just wanted to thank you for all your help over the past few months. It has been a pleasure talking to you. You have been very kind, approachable and helpful in my process to leave my current role and transferring onto a better opportunity. The encouragement and patience you have given me has been second to none. I will be highly recommending you to my fellow peers and friends. I have already passed your details onto others. I hope we stay in touch whilst I make my transition to Bayfields.

Monica Simarro-Ruiz | Optometrist

Jonathon, Our time has been really short, due to the efficiency of your work. Since the first time I spoke to you and explained my requirements, you found me a job that fitted my requirements completely and furthermore you gave me all the information and support I needed.
You provided me with information about interviews and trial days and your support was fantastic.

Sarah Johnson | Optometrist

Jonathon, Thank you for the help and advice you offered me during the past few weeks. I was pleased you were able to put me in touch with Stephen and David Daniels who were looking for a part time experienced member of staff to enable Stephen to enjoy his semi-retirement . You were able to answer my questions and you were professional and friendly throughout the whole process.
Thank you and Prospect Health for helping me secure this new position with Ashton and Daniels.

Priya Burgul | Practice Manager

Kristy, I just wanted to say that I have received what I believe to be a truly professional and outstanding service from yourself and prospect and I am truly grateful for this. From the first phone call all through the journey I felt I was truly listened to and great advice was given regarding my needs and requirements, which I found extremely helpful, as changing jobs can be a very emotional and testing time.
I was really impressed with how promptly you replied to my queries and how you arranged several interviews for me. I was counselled through the whole process very well which made me extremely comfortable. Also how you advised me on my job options, which had lead me to the role which I am today, thanks to you!
I have already recommended prospect to several of my friends and colleagues!
I feel Prospect is a great example to other recruitment companies on how it would be done in terms of care and service.

Eddie Loyal | Practice Manager

My experience with Prospect Health has been absolutely fantastic, unlike other agencies I have used in the past Kristy who has been dealing with me has always kept in contact and has always followed things up when she says. I have been speaking to Kristy for a number of years now and she has always delivered great service and never has put me forward for a job that didn’t suit me, she has always kept me informed be it good or bad news. Most recently Kristy has found me the ideal job role and has met all my expectations. I will be recommending Prospect Health to others and will defiantly recommend Kristy to find that right role for the right person. Thanks again Kristy


My initial opportunity sounded ideal, being local and with a fast expanding company. However, the position was beyond my experience and therefore was not taken up. I was most impressed that within a very short time after the interview, Liam contacted me with feedback which was most helpful. From there, I could reassess future potential positions, and the agency could do the same. My next opportunity sounded much more suitable, being with a small independent practice. Unfortunately, I decided this was too far to commute, but again with this information being passed back to Liam, he could again tailor the next offer. This came again shortly after, with what is now my present, ideal position. I am now in a local, progressive independent, which suits all my needs.

Liam proved invaluable during initial negotiations over hours and pay etc. This made things much easier for me than doing so direct with my future employers. I had regular contact and felt comfortable with asking basic questions, and him being available after office hours meant I was not in the unfortunate position of having a colleague or employer listening in. I received a follow-up call and contacted him myself after starting the position, so always felt as if I had back-up to rely on. All in all, I found the service extremely efficient, professional, and possibly as importantly, friendly and approachable with nothing being too much trouble.

Hamid Butt | Optometrist

Paul Owen has been very helpful with the movement from one opticians to another. I am very satisfied with his service and would recommend to everyone. He had explained all aspects of the procedure and answered all of my queries and kept me informed all throughout the whole process; Also gave courtesy calls in the after service and was all round the clock available and willing to have a chat. I would strongly recommend Prospect Health to anyone.

ALIYA ARQUM | Optometrist

It’s my first day with Vision Call tomorrow and I’m really looking forward to it. It will be a new challenge and a new focus point for me. Something which couldn’t have come at a better time. I would like to thank you for your time and support in securing this position. The service I received was both personal and professional. You kept me updated at every stage of the process and dealt precisely with every query that I had. I would happily recommend you to anyone of my friends in optics.

NICOLA ROGERS | Dispensing Optriciian

In all my dealings with Prospect Optical, I found them to be polite, courteous and professional, yet also friendly and approachable. The whole process was made so much easier by them being available in the evenings as well as during working hours.If ever my contact was on another call or in a meeting, they returned my calls as soon as possible. They were consistently dependable in getting back to me when they said they would.

They were always willing to help with any requests or negotiations. I felt that the service provided was very personal. We spoke so often that my contact recognised my voice without me even having to identify myself! It was a pleasure to deal with Prospect and I would have no hesitation in recommending their services to colleagues, past and present. I really do appreciate all your help over the last few months. You’ve been great!

From start to finish Prospect Health have exceeded all expectations in finding me my new position. I have received brilliant advise with regards to interview techniques and decision making, without being too pushy.
Calum has been a pleasure to deal with, he has a really natural, pleasant manner whilst maintaining a professional viewpoint.

Mariyam Khan | Optometrist

I am newly qualified Optometrist and was in search of an Optometrist role within the Manchester area. I came across Prospect Health when searching for vacancies online. I decided to contact the team in order to help me with job opportunities. I am very pleased and grateful with the help and support which I have received from Prospect Health. Jacques Clarkson was my main Specialist Recruitment Consultant and I am extremely grateful to him for finding me my ideal Optometrist position in Manchester. I found that his experience and knowledge of optical recruitment had lead to my success. Initially Jacques discussed and asked me in great detail exactly what I was looking for in regards to employment. I found that Jacques listened to my employment requirements and acted upon this very well. During my employment search, I felt comfortable to discuss any employment concerns. I was really impressed that I was easily able to contact Jacques by either telephone or email.

I was amazed with how quickly Jacques had found me suitable vacancies and had arranged different interviews with various companies. I was extremely pleased and grateful with the interview preparation documents which I received. Before interviews Jacques had specifically contacted me and we would discuss in detail what to expect from interviews. I was very grateful for this as interviews can be a daunting process. The advice and support which I received was exceptional. I attended interviews fully prepared and as a result I received employment offers from different companies. By having choices from different optical companies, I was then able to make the right decision. My whole experience with Prospect Health has been fantastic. I did not have to wait for a long period in order to find a suitable position. Jacques really guided and helped me each way through my recruitment progress. I am very pleased to have received an Optometrist position very close to where I live and I am looking forward to this opportunity.

Helen Jones | Dispensing Optriciian

I am writing regarding Phoebe Towers, she is a fantastic agent, the best I have ever had dealings with! Beginning the long task of searching for a new job can be very daunting, Phoebe makes the whole experience far easier! She was friendly yet professional, honest yet encouraging. I found her interview coaching really helpful, It really did improve my interview technique! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Phoebe and your company to fellow professionals in the future.

Evgenia Lynch | Dispensing Optriciian

I had never used the services of an agency to find a job so I was delighted that my experience with Prospect Health was great right from the beginning.
Prospect Health phoned me to find out out my current situation, they were incredibly polite and very professional.
They kept me informed about all the changes regarding interviews and the positions and I felt that they were researching for me all the time.
I would certainly recommend Prospect Health to every person who needs support and help to get a job. They are the right professionals to ask.


I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support over the last few weeks, you have made a very daunting experience a lot less scary, by taking the time to talk to me about each position available and coach me before interviews. You have found me my absolute perfect job as well as making me aware of the other opportunity’s out there. I can’t honestly thank you enough and will recommend your services to all my friends. I really feel you went above and beyond to help me. Thank you again.

Siama Bashir | Optometrist

I was contacted by Prospect Health regarding opportunities in my local area Paul the recruitment consultant was AMAZING. I had a successful interview and ideal placement within a week.
I could not have hoped for a more smooth, professional and stress free process. I would like to say a massive thank you to Paul who made it all happen and I most definitely would recommend Prospect Health to all my fellow health professionals.

Tracy Ly | Optometrist

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Luke Shearstone at Prospect Health for all of his help. I know compliments are rather painful for him, but I do believe that when someone is exceptional at what they do – they should be recognised for it! There are so many recruiting agencies nowadays, it’s almost too overwhelming to even consider as an option. Being a newly qualified optometrist, it was difficult to pluck up the courage to venture outside of my comfort zone; I wasn’t really sure of what path I wanted to take, and even when it came to light I was clueless as to how to execute it.

Luke was very professional, friendly, honest and ridiculously efficient; he took the time to understand me as an individual – i.e. my background, personality, morals, working ethics, achievements, ambitions etc, and from this information he was able to tailor a shortlist of local vacancies very quickly. I would be lying if I said that I didn’t once think to myself that it was too good to be true – how could a recruitment agency possibly care that much about me and my needs?… You’d be surprised! Other agencies offered one phone call lasting no more than 10 minutes, and consisted of no more than two questions. Whereas Luke, on the other hand, was always there to offer support and guidance every step of the way, and so made this whole ordeal a lot less daunting. As a result, I am thrilled to have accepted a brilliant job offer! I am really grateful for his hard work – and I would not hesitate to recommend his expertise.

Lindsey | Optometrist

I would like to thank Paul and Prospect Health for finding me a new role. Paul listened to my needs in a new job and once the right opportunity came up, he kept me updated at all times with how things were progressing and supported me through the interview process. Paul also negotiated my new work benefits with the employer so that they met my requirements and made my decision to accept the new job very easy!

Mandev Kaley | Optometrist

Paul Smith was great with matching me to a brilliant new job closer to home. He asked me what I wanted in a new job, pointed me in the right direction and he helped every step of the journey. From the initial meeting with the possible employers, to advice with the contract offer and counter offer counselling. I am now very excited to begin work with my new employers.

Kevin Bhundia | Optometrist

Paul, I would like to thank you for all your help, you’ve been really helpful, communication has been great and you have always ensured that all my questions have been answered. You have also been really honest which I really appreciate. Thanks for finding me such a great store, couldn’t have done it without you!

Vijay Kakkar | Optometrist

Paul, I just wanted to say a massive thank you for all your help over the past few months. Your experience and contacts within the optical industry have been made the process of changing jobs a lot easier than I initially anticipated.

NEIL CHUDASAMA | Optometrist

Prospect-health provides a recruitment service which provided a tailor made service. A detailed discussion of my preferences was definitely understood as it led to more than one job opportunity, which surpassed my high expectations. As a result I am now enjoying my work which prospect- health found me. I am yet to come across a better recruitment service in the optical sector. Many thanks go to Liam Fordham for his quality advice, swift responses and of course courtesy.

Mark Nevey | Dispensing Optician

My experience with Prospect Health, and specifically Calum, was exceptional. Calum was very honest and candid, in regards to the appropriateness of particular positions and with particular companies. He was extremely attentive to my needs and my character, to ascertain the most suited opportunities for me to pursue. He was caring and compassionate about my career prospects and made me feel like I was his only client, throughout the entire process. When he was on Leave, Prospect Health ensured that I had other colleagues that I could contact and who kept me updated on any progress. I can’t thank Prospect Health and Calum enough, for essentially finding me my dream job, whilst upholding the utmost professionalism and efficiency throughout.
