Specsavers Clydebank are seeking a driven, forward-thinking Optometrist to join them on either a full or part time basis.   We recognise that our people are the key to our success. That’s why, at Specsavers in Clydebank, we do everything we can to ensure our team get the best from us too, from market-leading training, access to cutting-edge technology and a personal development plan built around you. Become our next Optometrist at Specsavers Clydebank, a highly successful store with a great reputation for staff progression and unparalleled support.


The store has been operating successfully for 7 years however the Directors have 30 years of running stores under their belts.   The Directors manage two other stores Braehead and Milngavie.  Joining as an Optometrist with us will allow, should you want to, the opportunity to move around and work in our other stores occasionally, either as a permanent member of staff, or outside working hours as a locum.    


What’s on Offer?
•    Competitive salary 
•    No late nights
•    30-minute testing
•    Full or part time available 
•    Support with additional locum work, should you want It
•    Private health and dental cover
•    Pension contribution
•    Outstanding clinical and professional development opportunities
•    Support with CET 
•    Access to the latest clinical technology such as OCT
•    Free onsite parking 


We are passionate about the clinical development of our team, and as our new Optometrist, we will support you with extra courses and specialisms which interest you. Whatever your ambitions, from WOPEC qualifications and independent prescribing to paediatric accreditations or enhanced optical services, we’ll do everything we can to help you be the best clinician you can be.  


In addition, our Optometrists are an integral part of our store management team, so we’re keen to get you up to speed outside the test room too. With ILM courses, Pre-Reg supervision and the Specsavers Partnership scheme (Pathway), of which we currently have two team members going through Pathway currently, are available to explore. Along with your clinical expertise – this will stand you in good stead if you choose to become a store director yourself one day.


Our location
This position is located just outside the vibrant city of Glasgow. With excellent transport links, it’s not uncommon for people to commute from far and wide. As an Optometrist in Clydebank, your client base will be very diverse – but with plenty of familiar faces of course.

You’ll need to be a qualified and GOC registered Optometrist with the drive, passion and the willingness to build upon our customer-focused culture. As part of our team, you’ll need to be able to provide a unique blend of customer care and professional excellence.
