About Leuchie House

This is a really exciting time to join Leuchie! As a charity we are dedicated to delivering a unique, fully integrated health and social care service, built around our bespoke five star quality assurance framework based on professionalism, wellbeing and customer service.

Set in the beautiful East Lothian countryside beside North Berwick, Leuchie House is a national respite centre offering short breaks to people with a wide range of long term conditions including multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s. We cared for people with 31 different conditions in 2016.

We enjoy a country house feel at Leuchie, rather than a clinical atmosphere, with the emphasis as much on social care as on health. We are at the forefront in person-centered care and offer physiotherapy and a variety of activities and entertainment throughout each guest’s stay.

The learning and development of our staff is crucial as we strive to deliver a wide range of opportunities and experiences. We are delighted to be an official partner of Queen Margaret University working together on health and social care, research and co-production.

The role

Leuchie's catering is renowned among the guests who stay with us. Our home-cooked meals and baking can often be a real highlight of a respite break at Leuchie House.

We are now looking for a part time cook to join our catering team. You will have high standards, work well to deadlines and be flexible in catering for varying dietary requirements.

In return, we can offer you a great package of benefits, a special place to work, and a chance to be a light in the lives of people living with long term conditions.

Hours

This is a part-time permanent role working 20 hours each fortnight.

Salary and benefits

  • £9.00 per hour
  • 35 days holiday entitlement pro rata
  • Benefits: life assurance, workplace pension, discounted gym membership, employee assistance programme, health cash scheme, access to SCVO Credit Union, discounted home cooked food, free will writing and amendment service
  • The chance to make a real difference to the lives of people with long term conditions
