Job Details


(Maternity Cover)

We are looking for an exceptional Arts Administrator to support our small, passionate team across all the company’s projects.


  Salary:              £20-24k per annum, dependent on experience

  Contract:          Full time, maternity cover (minimum 1 year)

  Location:          Bristol – office based

  Hours:              9.00am-5.30pm, Monday-Friday



Responsible for the day-to-day running of a busy office, the Arts Administrator is a central point between all members of staff and a first point of contact for artists, clients and creative partners.

A job for an extremely organised, practical and proactive multi-tasker, it requires an abundance of confidence, resourcefulness, a head for numbers, and a keen eye for detail. This role offers autonomy and responsibility in a busy and often pressurised environment so the ability to prioritise efficiently and communicate effectively is key.

The role of the Arts Administrator is hugely varied and will allow the post-holder to learn about and support the running of the company at every level. It is an exciting opportunity to take a pivotal role in a successful, growing company and to bring your own unique skills to complement those of our small, hardworking and passionate team.

A certain proportion of the Arts Administrator’s time will be devoted specifically to work on the company’s ground-breaking project Extraordinary Bodies, the UK’s leading integrated professional circus company, in partnership with another organisation, Diverse City. There is also time allotted to supporting with marketing and with finance, so we are looking for a real all-rounder who can show commitment and enthusiasm to a wide range of tasks and responsibilities.
