About Leuchie House

Set in the beautiful East Lothian countryside beside North Berwick, Leuchie House is Scotland's only dedicated respite centre offering short breaks to people with a wide range of long term conditions including multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s. 

We are committed to ensuring all our guests have a five star experience and every member of staff plays a part in creating the fun and positive country house feel that is central to that.

Our focus is as much on social care as on health, ensuring that every guest has the chance to take part in the kinds of things that will make their break special.

The role

As Leuchie continues to develop and grow, we require an additional registered nurse who is highly motivated and committed to delivering excellent nursing care to our guests. As a nurse led service, applicants should have the clinical and organisational skills to manage a complex nursing environment and be able to work as part of a multidisciplinary health and non-health related team. You’ll also be forward thinking with excellent communication skills and want to positively contribute to the Leuchie experience.
