Those employed will be deployed across the fifth and sixth floor of Titanic Belfast, which can cater for between 50 – 1,000 guests, as well as the Bistro 401, The Galley Café, and the SS Nomadic.
Head of human resources, Heather Graham said the new roles offer something for everyone.

We offer bespoke training, mentorship, career development and flexible working opportunities, as well as a robust benefits package and assistance with transportation.”
Titanic Belfast is hosting a hospitality careers open day at the venue of August 24 from 12pm to 4pm, allowing prospective staff the opportunity to meet the team, including head of hospitality, Lloyd Jackson and executive head chef, Alastair Fullerton and learn about working at some of Northern Ireland's most prestigious events.
