Careers at CooperVision  

CooperVision is a global leader in the contact lens industry, dedicated to helping improve the way people see every day. Achieving that goal takes the collaboration of team members with wide-ranging skills; from scientists and researchers, to manufacturing and operations experts, to sales and marketing professionals.

CooperVision employees pride themselves on being proactive, innovative, flexible and friendly. That’s a strong reflection of our corporate culture—and part of the reason CooperVision may be a great workplace for you.

We’re all about bright futures—for our people, our customers and those who wear our contact lenses.

We like to look at things a little differently. We call it bringing a refreshing perspective. And for every one of us who works here, it means our opinion really counts, we get to share our ideas, and we get to make an impact.  

We’re big on belonging. Because being part of something great is what makes our company the best it can be. And we value diversity, because you can see a whole lot more when you have different perspectives.

We’re an ambitious company. And to help us achieve our goals, we’ll give you all you need to achieve yours.

CooperVision world map

We are growing globally.

CooperVision is a global industry leader and continues to expand. We call ourselves a small, large company, because while we’re one of the largest manufacturers of soft contact lenses in the world, we’ve never lost that entrepreneurial spirit that drives us.

Our contact lenses are manufactured on three continents and sold in over 130 countries.1 In 2019, as part of our commitment to global corporate citizenship, CooperVision and our parent organisation, CooperCompanies, joined major corporations, non-profit organisations and governments around the world in officially aligning with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, a global framework and action plan to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity and peace for all by 2030.

Fundraising events at CooperVision sites around the world, a patient rebate programme, cause-related marketing campaigns and an annual company match of employee donations have generated over $3 million in contributions for OGS*.
