Titanic Belfast’s crew are pictured celebrating as recruitment opens for 50 new frontline fixed-term jobs for its summer high season.
One of Northern Ireland’s biggest visitor attractions is taking on 50 new recruits ahead of what is expected to be a busy summer.
Titanic Belfast is hiring in its Visitor Experience, Ticketing, Retail and Events divisions in what is the company’s largest single recruitment drive since opening in 2012.
It currently employs 130 people directly, as well as 139 sub-contractors.
Chief Executive of Titanic Belfast, Tim Husbands MBE is calling for applications from strong communicators.
“At Titanic Belfast, we value our staff as one of key assets and reasons for success having been named Europe’s best visitor attraction for groups, beating the Eiffel Tour and London Eye as well as listed in Lonely Planet's Ultimate Travelist of the world's most striking locations,” he said. “If you have excellent communication skills and interest in both Titanic and Belfast’s industrial heritage – you could have the ‘Titanic-factor’ and be part of our award-winning crew!”
In the first three years the exhibition said it generated £105 million in additional tourism spend for the Northern Ireland economy and has sustained around 893 jobs each year in the wider economy.
