something wicked this way comes
This is a list detailing different positions of employment at Le Cirque Noir. Keep in mind that you must consult this before creating a new character and either choose one of the open positions or, if what you are looking for isn't here, suggest an act or job to be added to the list. The numbers in parenthesis show the amount of characters already filling that position. Once a position is full it will be stricken through (some may be filled with one character, while others may be able to hold multiple), and no more characters can be made for that act or job. You can reserve a position for four days by using the code and posting in this thread. If you have any questions about anything on this list as well as what sort of characters might be "allowed", don't hesitate to ask an admin through pm or our feedback forum. Additionally, please check here for more elaborate descriptions of some of the jobs on these lists!

Acrobatic Director -- This person is in charge of all acrobatic performances by choreographing them as well as making adjustments and changes when performers are injured. He or she oversees the acrobats training as well as their head coach and mentor.

Artistic Director -- The Artistic Director decides on the general look and feel of the show. They make the decisions regarding aspects like the music, lights, and props used in the show.

Accounting Director -- The Accounting Director keep the circus's ledger, totalling up ticket sales, expenses, and whatnot. When things get tight, they know where to cut funding, and when things are looking good, they dictate which acts are pulling in profits so the performers can GET PAID more. They distribute pay as well as keep a record for any problems that might cause pay to be docked.

Burlesque Director -- The person responsible for choreographing, staging, and directing the burlesque show in the Cooch Tent. All of the burlesque girls answer to this leading lady.

Cookhouse Director -- This person leads the small band of workers in the kitchen. They order the produce, dairy, and meats three times a week, and are periodically on-site during the day. They are required to help out in the physical labor, though their priority is to oversee the kitchen, make sure it is clean, and the food being pushed out is wholesome.

Menagerie Director -- This person is in charge of all the animals. Different from the Vet, they do not attend to their medical or health issues--rather they prevent them from happening. They oversee the animal handlers and the performers who work with animals to be sure they are following protocol when it comes to animal treatment. They also ensure the menagerie is run smoothly, keeping the animals in their areas and preventing or handling any problems that may arise. They work with the performance director and vet closely to ensure both the audience and the animals will be satisfied with their acts.

Performance Director -- This person is in charge of all acts in making sure they are performed to the best of their ability and run without a hitch. They are also the "stage manager" of the show who decides and signals the pacing of the acts. He or she has the authority to rearrange the order of acts during a live show in case of an emergency.

Ringmaster -- The Ringmaster is the show's Master of Ceremonies (such as parades and special events) and main announcer.

Security Director -- This person organizes and trains the show's "patches", or security team. They are in charge of keeping performers and sideshow acts safe, as well as removing any disruptive rubes from the premises.

Sideshow Director -- This person is in charge of all of the side show acts or most commonly known as the 'freaks'. They keep (or try to keep) arguably the most unruly member group in line. It's their responsibility to enforce certain rules set in place by Monsieur Sombre himself. They do not, however, have any authority over the Burlesque dancers.

Stunt Director -- This person is in charge of coordinating all stunts in the show, such as The Human Cannonball, The Globe of Death, the Space Wheel, etc. They make sure everything is safe and smooth, and that the dangerous acts they're in charge of will go off without problem during a show.

Workmen Director (Punk Pusher) -- This person is in charge of keeping everything running smoothly by overseeing all workmen and delegating tasks.
