Optometrist - Rutherglen, Glasgow

Role summary

A brand-new opportunity has arisen for a qualified optometrist at the Specsavers Rutherglen store.

Specsavers Rutherglen prides itself on being a friendly and very customer orientated opticians. In 2016, the store was ranked the highest out of every store in the UK for positive customer feedback and continues to excel as a forerunner for customer satisfaction.

The Director is keen to find a new Optometrist who lives and breathes by the same values. It is extremely important that you gain great satisfaction from your job and more importantly, love helping people.

The store was established in 2007 and currently employs four full-time Optometrists, three of which are IP qualified and have the backing of a fantastic support team that includes two, soon to be three, Dispensing Opticians.

For those of you who are clinically focussed, you will be pleased to know that Specsavers Rutherglen was one of the original three pathfinding practices that started the Glasgow Integrated Eyecare Project in 2002. This eventually led to the introduction of the new Scottish GOS contract in 2006.

It is also important to know that the store Director is a highly experienced optometrist who is very pro-training. If you are looking for an employer that will invest in your career development, then this is an ideal opportunity.

On top of this, the opportunity comes with a generous basic salary and the following key benefits:

  • Monthly bonus
  • Study support
  • GOC and college fees paid
  • Private health / dental
  • 29 days holiday
  • Nearby free parking
  • Plus much more!
