BELFAST'S Titanic visitor centre is recruiting for 30 new hospitality jobs as it looks to expand its successful events team.

The push is being spearheaded by head of hospitality Lloyd Jackson and executive head chef Alastair Fullerton.

Roles to be filled are across all areas of the hospitality department, from the 50 to 1,000 capacity conference suites on the upper floors, to the Bistro 401 and Galley Café eateries on the ground level.

Successful permanent crew will complete the internationally recognised WorldHost training course – the world's leading customer service training programme.

Titanic Belfast's chief executive Tim Husbands said they are preparing for a busy season ahead and hope to build on past success.

“We value our staff as one of key assets and reasons for success,” he said.

“To ensure our world-class standards are met and maintained, all Titanic Belfast employees go through a robust preparation programme, including substantial on the job and bespoke customer service training.”

Since its opening three years ago, Titanic Belfast has gone from strength to strength, holding more than 1,000 events – from MTV Sounds to BBC Sports Personality of the Year – and catering for a range of illustrious guests, including taoiseach Enda Kenny and US presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton.

The centre has already ready generated £105 million in additional tourism for Northern Ireland and sustains nearly 900 jobs each year.

It also recently received its ‘Gold Standard' Investor in the People accreditation – a world-renowned badge of honour for businesses.
