  • Where you'll work
  • Our lovely new care home in Edinburgh will reflect the spirit, fun and warmth of this lovely corner of the capital. Portobello (or ‘Porty’ to locals) is three miles east of Edinburgh city centre and is known for its strong community ethos and friendly atmosphere. There are great cafes and shops on Porty’s vibrant High Street, a thriving monthly market and one of the only original and still-functioning Turkish baths in Scotland. The care homeitself will be a stone’s throw from the sea, the sandy beach and the long seafront promenade of this historic suburb. Our care home is being built over three floors and every aspect of its design reflects the Care UK ethos of helping residents to enjoy active and fulfilling lives. Residents will be able to catch their favourite films in comfy chairs in the cinema, or enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and delicious cake in the coffee shop, which opens onto a second floor terrace. This spacious area will give residents and their visitors the chance to catch up ‘al fresco’ on warm days and enjoy views westwards to Arthur’s Seat and eastwards to the beach at Portobello. 

Care UK is committed to ensuring that it employs people with the right mix of talent, skills and potential and will assess every applicant fairly regardless of race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, responsibilities for dependents, age, physical/mental disability or offending background. Having a criminal record will not necessarily prevent you from working with us, it will depend on the nature of the role and background of any offence.
