Optical Express plans to create 100 new jobs in Glasgow
Optical Express have announced that 100 new customer services jobs will be created at the company's call centre in Glasgow.
The eye company, Optical Express, is also to open 24 new clinics in the UK and create 100 customer care jobs in Scotland. The group, which is based in Cumbernauld, already runs 180 stores across Europe, employing about 3,000 people.
The new jobs will be at the firm's call centre in Glasgow. The company said the clinics will be based in out-of-town locations where rents are cheaper. As well as laser eye surgery, Optical Express offers other health care services including cosmetic surgery. The firm said the new clinics will make eye surgery more accessible to many people.
Hugh Kerr, operations director of Optical Express said: "Our strategy is to continue to invest in our service offering to deliver the best eye care treatment solution available in the UK, whether that be spectacles, contact lenses or laser eye surgery.
"This investment and recruitment drive underscores our commitment to deliver the most technologically advanced service in the UK but also at the lowest possible cost to the consumer."
