Make a difference to people's life by improving their vision...join our team!

At Urquhart Opticians, our vision is to be Scotland’s leading independent Opticians.

It’s a bold vision but one that our whole team is committed to and we strive every day to achieve .

Over the past three years, our business has grown significantly. We’ve got a management team, consisting of four other Opticians, who are driven to make a difference to people’s life by improving their vision.We are a forward thinking team, always finding ways to improve our service offering and nothing ever stays the same for very long, whether that’s introducing OCT, offering a Macular Management Clinic or partnering with the world’s leading technology provider for the visually impaired, OrCam.

Due to our continued growth, we are looking to add an Optometrist to our team. You will be part of a team of Optometrists and supported by a business function that allows you to focus on what you want to do most – care for our patients. You can also expect to be supported with your professional development (Management/IP, etc), to have a platform to voice opinions and for those to be implemented as part of our businesses improvement and it will be an environment where you are valued and you’re not just a number.

So, if you an individual that is committed to the highest levels of client care, is committed to the lifelong learning of the profession and wants to be part of an aspirational organisation, then we want to hear from you.

The right candidate for our team will have the following qualities:

·         A positive/can do attitude

·         Passionate about service and exceeding expectations

·         A people person with an outgoing personality

·         Confident in offering and recommending solutions to lifestyle problems

·         A good team player that can work under pressure and deliver against targets 

And if you haven’t already guessed, we like to do things a bit differently at times and so as an introduction to our business, we’ve created a short video and posted it on our Facebook page.
