‘Titanic' recruitment drive sees 80 new jobs ahead of £4.5m building refresh
WITH Titanic Belfast preparing to reopen its doors following a £4.5m refreshment programme on the Titanic Experience redeveloped, the world-leading tourist attraction has announced the creation of 80 seasonal jobs.
The roles are available across visitor experience, ticketing and retail outlets, with part and full-time hours available in the fixed-term contract positions from March until October.
A number of permanent roles are also being recruited for across the marketing, human resources and visitor attraction departments.
Heather Graham, Titanic Belfast’s head of HR said: “After a momentous year when we celebrated a decade of Titanic Belfast, we are set for an even bigger 2023 when we reopen.
“We value our staff as one of our key assets and reasons for success, so these new roles will play an important part in bringing the reimagined experience to life for our visitors, both locally and from across the globe, to ensure they receive the memorable experience that Titanic Belfast is renowned for.”
She added: “A job with Titanic Belfast is a unique opportunity for people to gain valuable experience of working in a world-class venue which will stand by them throughout their professional career.”
In the decade since opening, Titanic Belfast has welcomed more than seven million visitors and generated an additional £430 million direct visitor spend for the region's economy.
The upcoming £4.5m investment has been fully funded from the Titanic Belfast Gallery Refreshment Fund which was established when the building opened as part of the commercial operator agreement and held by the charity owner, Maritime Belfast Trust.
Closing date for applications for the current jobs is Monday February 6 (details at www.titanicbelfast.com/careers), and there will be a recruitment day at the end of that week to give applicants the chance to take part in interactive interview activity.
