Job description

We are 1 The Island Quarter.

1 The Island Quarter is an ambitious and exciting real estate development of a 36 acre freehold site in the heart of Nottingham, a development that has been ongoing since 2016 when the land was acquired.

We are a new & dynamic hospitality team charged with creating 1 The Island Quarter to be a sustainable business, transforming it into a cultural hub, a new and exciting destination for experiencing food, arts, music, sporting events and other community interests.  The first phase consists of 2 restaurants - Binks Yard and Cleaver & Wake, an outside live events space with a bandstand and an internal venue for private functions, a rooftop terrace as well as a florist.

What we do at 1 The Island Quarter is much more than be just a venue.  Our guest-centric team love what they do, t
aking pride in always delivering value and consistency, they are actively generous in going the extra mile to create great memories for our guests, aiming to deliver genuine, exceptional service that is inclusive, authentic and fun.


Cleaver & Wake

Cleaver & Wake is more than a restaurant, it is an experience.  The vision of our Chef Patron Laurence Henry, the menu allows you to be taken on a food journey, cooked in our open kitchen by our very skilled and passionate chefs.  Our knowledgeable bar team will pair drinks that heighten your experience and our front of house team know no bounds on ensuring that you are taken care of.  Cleaver & Wake is a place where memories are made.


As a kitchen assistant, you will help and support your team in keeping the kitchens clean, to a very high standard, and be proud of the contribution you make.  You will be working across the different kitchens and events areas, so no 2 days are ever the same.

You will be ensuring all sections are fully stocked and ready for service, all equipment is cleaned and ready for use and any broken items are logged and replaced.  A keen eye for detail you will be making sure all stockrooms are organised, tidied and follow stock rotation standards.  Using your initiative, you will make sure all kitchen and back of house areas are maintained meticulously, audit ready at all times.

If you have no experience, fear not, we are committed to train, develop and support you further whether you are happy in your stable and pivotal role or wish to learn new skills.  We are recruiting for a part time role, this will be on a zero hours contract.  



Benefits Of Working At The Island Quarter

We’re offering much more than a job.  Hospitality is a way of life.  We’re on a whirlwind adventure, working with our suppliers, partners and team to bring a new culinary experience to Nottingham – using fresh and exciting ingredients, mixology and flair, as well as a tailored guest journey. That’s a big deal.  But so are you.  That’s why we have a reward system that we know you’ll give the thumbs up to.  This includes:

  • A culture where you’re valued, supported and inspired to be at your best
  • Generous holiday package
  • Discounted food and drink whilst on shift
  • A heavily discounted gym membership with Virgin Active at Nottingham
  • Discount at Cineworld, Showcase and Odeon cinemas
  • Discounted travel using Tramslink
  • An Employee Assistance Program – we understand that we live in challenging times and whilst our Team will always be on hand to support one another it is sometimes more appropriate to have an alternative outlet to speak to about issues that may be affecting you
