About CooperVision

CooperVision is a global manufacturer of contact lenses. If you’re a wearer, it’s likely that you’ve tried our products as we supply to some of the UK’s largest opticians & household names. We are a global business with a presence in over 40 countries, but we operate as a “big small” company. This means we can be flexible to the ever-changing market, the needs of our customers and we are able to think outside of the box to make changes where we need to.

At CooperVision we have four key values that really define who we are as a business and our unique culture; we are dedicated, we are inventive, we are friendly, we are partners. We’re also focused on improving the way we do business every day, putting our customers first and supporting our colleagues.

Through a combination of innovative products and creative solutions, the company brings a refreshing perspective to the marketplace, creating real advantages for customers and contact lens wearers.

We're ambitious and we're looking for like-minded individuals to join our growing teams, to support our mission and our vision of helping our customers see more clearly every day.
