Current vacancies

Non-Executive Director

  • Management Board
  • Unpaid
  • East Lothian
  • Closing 16th December 2020

The management team and Board wish to enhance Leuchie’s governance capabilities, complementing our Board level health service expertise by attracting a Non-Executive Director who understands the provision of regulated health and social care. With a social care focus, the candidate may have either a health or social care background. Having been on a journey of improvement we are pleased to be an excellent grade 6 service.

In addition, our founding Treasurer and Chair of the Finance Committee is coming to the end of his term in office and we seek an enthusiastic accountant who will support the charity to further improve on its good financial stewardship.

These roles provide a unique opportunity to contribute at Board level to the delivery and development of an essential service with national impact and significance.

Scotland, along with much of the developed world is experiencing a rapidly aging population alongside increasing complexity of health in ageing as a result of medical advances. At the same time, the economy is in what appears to be an extended period of low growth with consequent impacts on the political choices which influence public spending.

Leuchie can and will continue to support our guests as individuals and is ambitious to become a national centre of excellence which makes a broader contribution at population level.

Leuchie benefits from our Board members who offer strategic support and may also offer ad hoc tactical advice to senior team members.

Crucially, we are seeking interest from candidates who are passionate about working to support Leuchie’s team to deliver excellent, personalised and life enhancing service whilst being realistic about resource constraints. This is not only a fabulous career opportunity but also a life defining one – it will be both demanding and fulfilling.

Leuchie is committed to equality of opportunity and recognises that it has a wider role to play in society. We therefore welcome suitably qualified applicants from those not typically represented on Boards.
