What you'll do

A brand-new vacancy has arisen for an Optometrist at the Specsavers Paisley store.


Based in the largest town in Renfrewshire, this busy store was established in 1993 but to allow for expansion, the store was relocated to a new and much larger premises in 2017. The business is now situated on the high Street and boasts 7 test rooms plus a modern and well-equipped working environment.


Specsavers Paisley also has a sister store in nearby Barrhead. The Barrhead store was established in 2012 and unlike Paisley, Barrhead is a much smaller practice that operates with 2 test rooms.


For those of you who are looking for variety, there is the golden opportunity to work across both stores. Paisley and Barrhead combined will provide the best of both worlds as one is a large busy store and the other a small community practice. Paisley and Barrhead are also used as training stores that employ dispensing students and optometry students doing pre-reg training.


Although different in terms of size, Paisley and Barrhead are very similar by the fact they both employ a very friendly and customer centric team that all share the same ethos. This is to provide a friendly and honest service with the customer at the heart of everything they do. The store Directors pride themselves on flexibility, fairness and equality which has produced a very happy and social working environment that has also been instrumental in the store’s success to date.


The store directors are also very pro training and always encourage their staff to develop their careers. This includes study support for qualifications such as IP and ILM and in some cases the Pathway to running your own Specsavers store. This really is the land of opportunity!


The position also comes with a generous salary and the following benefits:


  • 29 days holiday
  • Rota for weekends off
  • Performance bonus
  • Professional fees paid
  • Personal development plan / courses ambitions
  • And much more!
