We are looking for an exceptional individual to join us as Head Chef on a full time basis at our fantastic new Kirk Lane nursing home in Livingston (EH54) which will open May/June ’21.

You will support the home by providing a highly professional service, being the first point of contact for all enquiries and visitors to the home.

Our Organisation

At Randolph Hill, we have enjoyed an enviable reputation for quality care provision since 1985. We are large enough to be able to provide support to our team with a stable and supportive management structure, detailed policies and procedures and regular and comprehensive training, whilst still small enough to avoid becoming overly bureaucratic and make decisions to fit every circumstance. 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 6 Nursing homes located in Gullane, North Berwick, Edinburgh Sighthill, Edinburgh Morningside, Broxburn and Dunblane and will be opening a new Home in Livingston in the near future.
