Operating five stores, two in Swindon Old Town, one in Faringdon, one in Royal Wootton Bassett and one in Marlborough, Deacons the Jewellers is widely considered to be Wiltshire’s leading independent Jeweller.
With 170 years‘ experience of selling fine clocks watches and jewellery, this family-run business has successfully cultivated relationships with the most reputable suppliers for over six generations, being authorised stockists for Rolex, Tudor, Longines, Rado and Raymond Weil Watches, to name but a few, as well as famous Jewellery names such as Clogau and Trollbeads. The business also designs and brings to market their own exclusive Deacons for Diamonds Jewellery collections
Clocks are at the heart of our business, with the Regulator clock which stands to this day in the jewellery, clock and watch department was made by Deacon & Son Ltd around 1865 when the company held one of the timing contracts for the Great Western Railway on the line between Paddington and Swansea. Before radio and the telephone gave universally available timing, accurate time keeping had to be maintained locally and this was usually done by the means of the regulator clock.
Good old fashioned customer service is Deacon’s core belief, underpinned by its offerings of valuations, bespoke design services, and of course repairs.
The store is now looking forward to welcoming a new Clockmaker to join its highly valued Aftersales Service team in its comprehensively fitted out Workshops.
While the value of BHI qualification is clearly recognised, depth of experience on the bench is also highly prized. Where required, access to specific technical training will be provided. We are looking for a clock repairer which is either self-employed or wanting to gain employment, may this be part time or full time hours.
If the above description is a good fit, we welcome your interest, either by your CV or a confidential telephone conversation, whichever is best.
The salary is dependent on experience and required employment status.
Job Type: Full-time
