As General Manager for Audiology at Specsavers, Carina is responsible for the strategy, direction and commercial performance for the UK and Ireland Audiology business. Her career with Specsavers started 21 years ago, joining as an Optical Assistant in the Andover store in the year 2000. What she thought would be a gap year job, soon became a career spanning two decades, with roles in L&D, Retail and Operations across both the Optics and Audiology businesses. Specsavers’ mission is to change lives through better sight and hearing, and it’s this mission and ability to make an impact alongside the family values of the organisation, that has provided such a rewarding career to Carina.
Carina is passionate about seeing people grow and succeed, is a qualified coach and has set up and chairs the D&I Advisory Forum for Specsavers. Outside of work she loves to travel and has a passion for languages; you’ll find most of her current spare time taken up by learning German.
