We are looking for a part-time Bookkeeper/Company Administrator to join our team. The role straddles two separate sister companies, The Invisible Circus and The Loco Klub.

The Invisible Circus produces unique circus theatre experiences in a wide variety of unusual locations, from circus big tops and traditional theatres to site specific and promenade performances in disused industrial and historical buildings. Based in the UK since 2002, the company draws much from its decade of travelling as a street performance troupe in the 90s, exploring Europe’s rich performance culture and traditions working in arts and street festivals, carnivals and creation spaces. This community emphasis has continued as the company has developed attracting more and more creative energy as it evolves, drawing a diverse range of visual artists, performers, actors, directors, dancers, film makers, choreographers, musicians and technicians to its productions.

The Loco Klub is a new and exciting underground arts and performance venue beneath the Passenger Shed at Temple Meads. As well as boasting a series of fabulous performance spaces in the former social club bar rooms, the Loco Klub also holds a hidden treasure, a series of Brunel built railway arches, the former ash pits of the original station above. These underground caverns are a unique and jaw dropping performance space unlike anywhere else in the city.
