Specsavers Recruitment Services (SRS) has launched the SRS Locum App – a notification, engagement and organisational tool they say will greatly improve the way Specsavers connects with locum optometrists across Australia.
The app has been developed to simplify the way the locums share their availability, and schedule and book jobs.
Through the app, locums can register to work in any Specsavers store, view and accept locum vacancies in real time, share their availability via a personal calendar and sync to vacancies in their preferred area. They will also be able to view details of previous and upcoming bookings, liaise with their dedicated consultant via the messaging service, and enquire about permanent vacancies available at Specsavers.

Carly Parkinson, Specsavers’ Head of Partner Recruitment and SRS said the new tool was designed to make it easier for locums to engage with Specsavers.
“We know 2020 was a difficult year, and it’s been challenging for many locums to find the work that they want. For the first few months of 2021, we have experienced unprecedented demand, and the app is making it easier for locums to find, book and manage jobs, and share their availability for easy alignment to upcoming jobs,” she says.
“We anticipate the app will become a desirable tool for many locum optometrists across Australia and allow us to reach a wider locum audience, while also making it easier for our locums to book jobs and manage their workloads,” she says.
The app is available to optometrists nationwide, with vacancies now available in each state and territory.
Optometrists who are already registered with SRS have been invited to join the app via email once it’s live in their region. Optometrists who are not registered with SRS will be able to download the app from the App Store or Google Play Store and register their profile. Once the SRS team has approved their profile, locums will have full access to the app and its booking features.
