It's a restaurant in a prison and in the last three months of your sentence, if it's a non-violent sentence, you can go to the Clink and learn about hospitality. You work in the kitchen, the floor, with customers and when you finish your sentence, you're employable. Within three years we’d like 75% of our staff to be via the Clink, that’s our target.
What's your favourite part of your days?
My days are wildly different every day. I have a dog, a lurcher called Rocco and I run with him every morning, that’s my favourite part of the day and it keeps me focused. But the most enjoyable part of my job is people. I came from an advertising background, I worked for four years in a corporate office and I couldn't get to grips with how people behaved differently in an office compared to outside of that environment. In this environment, there's a realness to it and I love that.
