You can now get paid to talk about Game of Thrones at a wonderful Irish tourist attraction

It's time to 'take the black' and start your watch.

Much like the much-missed Maester Aemon Targaryen, JOE likes to think of ourselves as something of an old sage when it comes to Game of Thrones.

Throughout the course of the seven seasons, we've always been on hand to impart our pearls of knowledge, sending ravens stories for your enjoyment, and maybe, provide you with a bit of fun along the way.

Sadly, our watch is nearly ending because with Season 8 of the world's greatest show set to air on 14 April, we've all got to get used to the idea that much like The Land of Always Winter, we're starring into a depressing abyss as the world gets used to the idea of life without Game of Thrones.

Fear not though because the prequel is coming and TBL International are also doing their very best to keep you talking about all things GoT.

What are they doing?

Well, they're looking for potential employees to impress visitors with their enthusiasm for two of Northern Ireland’s biggest exports, RMS Titanic and Game of Thrones, this summer.

The company are adding to their Titanic Crew ahead of this year’s high season, as well as recruiting for the eagerly-anticipated Game of Thrones: The Touring Exhibition, when it debuts in the UK and Ireland in April.

In preparation for the blockbuster summer, the company are undertaking a recruitment drive to find 150 fixed-term employees.

In terms of the positions that they're looking to fill, they need people in all of the following areas; visitor experience, ticketing, hospitality outlets, and retail.

If you're happy to talk about The Long Night, Robert's Rebellion, and everything else that's occurred in Westeros and Essos, now is your chance to 'take the black.'

Basically, this means that there's going to be a Showcase Day to help identify the front line staff who can promote two of Northern Ireland’s biggest exports to the world.

Candidates must pre-register to secure a slot and they'll then be given a task.

Think you have what it takes to give a three-minute presentation to demonstrate your communication skills and passion for the project?

Essentially, think of it as a conversation where you're pitching yourself to be the leader of the Night's Watch. You know, without The Wall, terrifying prospect of White Walkers, and your co-workers stabbing you.

Trust us, it will be a blast!

The showcase for prospective front-of-house employees will be held on 22 and 23 February at the MAC Belfast in front of an expert judging panel.

Full details of the posts are available here.

Honestly, if we had to impress during the interview, we'd just recite the entire Night's Watch oath.
