We are looking for an exceptional individual to join us as Assistant Chef on a full time 40 hours per week. 

Our Organisation

At Randolph Hill, we have enjoyed an enviable reputation for quality care provision since 1985.

We offer fantastic rates of pay, have an incredibly low staff turnover (many of our staff have been here since they opened) and there are plenty of opportunities for career progression. All of our homes are extremely well run and have positive grades with the Care Inspectorate. Randolph Hill are committed to quality and are looking for like-minded people who wish to progress their career with us. We have 7 Nursing homes located in Gullane, North Berwick, Edinburgh Sighthill, Edinburgh Morningside, Broxburn, Livingston and Dunblane.

    If the answer to the previous question is ‘No’; from time to time we offer sponsorship to nurses who are eligible to register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council, and who have the correct documentation in place to come to the UK to work as a nurse. However we do NOT offer sponsorship to care assistants and would therefore ask that you do not apply if you are looking to work as a Care Assistant and require sponsorship.
