- June 18, 2019
Duncan & Todd Group is the leading optical provider in Scotland, owning and operating a chain of opticians across the region. Founded in 1972, the business operates through three divisions – retail, manufacturing and corporate and currently employs over 250 people across its national branch network and at its state of the art ophthalmic lens laboratory, Caledonian Optical in Aberdeen. The organisation also provides outsourced corporate eye care services to more than 200 public and private sector customers, through its Smart Employee Eyecare brand.
In March 2018 Duncan & Todd Group secured substantial investment from private equity firm LDC, which has allowed the business to accelerate its plans for growth. The business has since pursued an active buy-and-build strategy, as they look to cement their position as Scotland’s primary optometry service. In recent months, the organisation has successfully expanded its national footprint from its original base in the North East of Scotland to over 40 stores stretching from the Central Belt to the Highlands, including the 2020 Optical chain in Central Scotland.
As a result of this growth, Duncan & Todd Group seeks to appoint a strong Regional Retail Development Manager to lead their South region. This individual will be responsible for overseeing all practices situated across Edinburgh, Glasgow and the Borders, as well as leading and developing the Practice Managers within their region. The appointee will report directly to the Retail Sales Director and will have ultimate responsibility for the sales growth and development of their region. This is a fast-paced role in an agile business and an excellent opportunity for the right candidate to make a tangible impact on Duncan & Todd as they continue to embark on a significant period of growth.
