Optometrist, Stranraer, Dumfries Snd Galloway


This is a golden opportunity for an Optometrist to join the Specsavers Stranraer family. This busy and very welcoming store has received a top industry award in recognition of the fantastic employee experience it provides. This community focused practice also boasts trained optical advisors, dispensing opticians and IP accredited optometrists. If you would prefer to work for a smaller practice that has an independent feel, then look no further!


What’s on Offer?
•    A competitive annual salary (depending on experience)
•    A strong performance-based bonus scheme 
•    Holiday allowance of 30 days per year, plus bank holidays.

•    Potential for relocation assistance 

•    Private health and dental cover
•    Pension contribution
•    Outstanding clinical and professional development opportunities
•    Support with CET 


The store:
With a full redevelopment of the shop completed a couple of years ago, the practice offers excellent facilities which really do make it one of the most trusted opticians in the area.  The team have the opportunity to work towards an Independent Prescribing qualication (with nancial support from the store) which helps them build relationships with other medical professionals in the area.  The practice offers a range of exible working patterns to help strike the right balance between career and home life and most of the team choose to work four longer days and enjoy a leisurely 3 days off a week. 


The town:
Stranraer is located on the south west coast at the southern end of Lochryan. With a great community feel, excellent amenities and the much revered title of ’Warmest Place in Scotland’ the town really is a great place to build a life.  There are several beaches both in Stranraer and the surrounding area and we are only a stone's throw away from the famous Galloway Coast and Forest. The town itself is a great centre for those with leisure time to spend and would be an ideal location for bringing up a family. Stranraer is the closest UK port to Ireland with regular daily sailings which only take a couple of hours, or the busy town of Ayr is just over an hour away.


Platinum employer
Our store is an accredited Platinum Employer – this means you can expect an exceptional employee experience every single day you work here. The Platinum Employer Scheme is part of the Specsavers drive to become a famous place to work. Stores with this accreditation have been verified on five key employer standards: Recruitment, Performance Management and Reward, Talent Management, Learning and Development and Employee Engagement.


What we’re looking for
Alongside being a qualified and GOC registered Optometrist, we are searching for someone who shares our store’s ethos. Someone who wants to grow, develop and offer exceptional customer care along the way. We want a practitioner who prides themselves on their clinical judgment, that isn’t afraid of a hands-on approach and who is keen to get involved and build rapport with the rest of the team. In summary, we’re looking for a skilled resident Optometrist to join us, be part of the team and assist in driving our practice forward.
