Want to be part of something special? Our family’s growing and we need great people like you. To do amazing things, we need truly amazing people.


Why work for Bayfields?

We make our clients’ lives better every day, and we know this because they’re never too shy to tell us. That’s down to talented people like you. When you’re lucky enough to have a team of empathetic, problem-solving, knowledge-sharing human beings, it shows in the service we offer. Put simply, it’s our USP.


Our mission and vision

Our mission is to deliver over one million eye and hearing care exams — and make the lives of each of those people easier, comfier and better.

We hope to build a world-class brand centred around client unique lifestyles, which means that we don’t just plan to raise the bar for technical excellence, but also for a personal level of service for both optometry and audiology.


Ways of working

Everything we do works towards providing an absolutely exceptional level of service to our clients. It’s something of an obsession.

We deliver it by giving you the best of both worlds: the autonomy of an individual practice with the freedom to spend time with clients as an independent, alongside the central support with finance, people, tech and marketing that you get from an established, proven group.

We’ll always be collaborating closely with you to find ways to improve and tailor our journey even more closely to our clients’ unique lifestyles and needs.

It’s so important to us to keep our family feel and close community links, combining our world-class processes and resources with our truly independent heart.

Royston Bayfield, founder and CEO at Bayfields Opticians & Audiology, said: 'Everyone’s looking for a work life that just fits. Somewhere you’ll be heard, your hard work will be seen, and you get to do something genuinely good. And, when you spend as much time working as you do, that seems like a pretty reasonable thing to want.

'At Bayfields, ever since we started in Yorkshire, we’ve worked hard to be a team you’ll be excited to work with. We’re proudly transparent, committed to fairness, and we know a fantastic idea is just as likely to come from a new starter as a board member. It’s no surprise that we’ve attracted so many former employees from the large optical chains. We shape our business around our people, not the other way around. And, as we see our family grow to more than 35 locations, we’re going to prove that you can be a well-known name and give our team respect and opportunity.'
