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.

The kitchen is your natural habitat – you enjoy seeing a team thrive during service and hearing the guest compliments coming back through.  Not only will you be supporting the Head Chef with designing the menu, using ingredients that tantalise and excite, but you’ll be there with your team making these dishes and using your fine dining cooking skills and your passion for detail and innovation.

A natural leader you will be supporting the Head Chef whilst developing the talent below you, allowing them to gain the knowledge needed to become the next Sous Chef.  You make sure that all team members have a development plan.  Managing food margins and wastage is second nature to you, writing rotas and hitting labour margins whilst delivering profit is something you have done in previous roles and will bring to this one.

A 5* food hygiene rating is your bread and butter, you manage your team to be audit ready at all times, and food safety is paramount – you put your guests as your priority.




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
