Fancy working for the Titanic? (Don’t worry, it’s not going to sea)

TITANIC BELFAST IS looking for people with the T-Factor during its first audition day next week.

The exhibition looking back at the ill-fated ship’s story is due to open in the city in March and 70 front-of-house staff are required.

To get the job, applicants will have to prove to “judges” that they can promote Titanic and Northern Ireland to the world.

Recruiters have said they are looking for people with a “keen interest in the history of Belfast, a strong knowledge of the Titanic story and a positive attitude”.

Auditions for the 70 positions will be held on 14 January at Grafton Employment Group Belfast’s headquarters at Custom House Square.

Candidates will be given a script of a scenario that could happen in any of the nine galleries in the Titanic Belfast building. They will then be asked to make a presentation in front of recruiters to demonstration their “communication skills and passion for the project”.

However, a successful audition will not guarantee the job. Another round of formal interviews will be held at a subsequent date.

Titanic Belfast is an six-floor building with nine interactive galleries that intends to bring the visitor into the world of the Titanic and the City in which she was built.

The centre will boast temporary exhibits, a 1,000-seat banqueting suite, education and community facilities, catering and retail space and a basement car park.

Last year, about 1,500 people turned up for a drop-in day about working in the new amenity – which hopes to be Northern Ireland’s biggest tourist attraction.

The audition day will take place between 10am and 5pm on 14 January but those interested in attending should pre-register online at before 13 January.
