Titanic Belfast creating 60 new jobs

Titanic Belfast is creating 60 new temporary jobs as it heads into the summer season.

The tourism spot, which was recently named the best in the world, is expanding its frontline team.

The posts are both full-time and part-time, for up to six months.

Tim Husbands, chief executive of Titanic Belfast, said: “At Titanic Belfast, we value our staff as one of our key assets and reasons for success having been named not only Europe’s Leading Visitor Attraction but the best in the world, on par with Las Vegas Strip, USA, the Taj Mahal, India and the Egyptian Pyramids.

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

The museum, which opened in 2012, staved off competition from Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi, the Las Vegas Strip and Peru's Machu Picchu to clinch the accolade at a ceremony for the World Travel Awards in the Maldives.

The title puts the Belfast landmark on a par with previous winners such as the Taj Mahal in India and the Egyptian pyramids.

More than one million votes were cast from over 216 countries and the Titanic Belfast campaign was supported by Northern Irish personalities, politicians and sports stars.

The Guinness Storehouse in Dublin was also in the running.
