Did you spend your childhood playing with LEGO instead of going outside? Do you still spend all your free time as an adult, dropping most of your paycheck too, on the iconic building brick toys? Well, we’ve got the dream job for you. Because two lucky LEGO fans in Birmingham now have the chance to become master builders.
LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Birmingham, which describes itself as “the ultimate LEGO indoor playground, is recruiting two Assistant Master Model Builders. The family attraction, situated in the Utilita Arena Birmingham (Or the NIA as we like to call it), is full of awesome LEGO activities – including LEGO-themed rides, a 4D cinema and MINILAND, which sees Birmingham’s most famous landmarks re-created in LEGO.
As an Assistant Master Model Builder, it will be your job to build the centre’s stunning showpieces – especially during holidays like Halloween and Christmas – run creative workshops with visitors, and support the Master Model Builder, Michelle Thompson, at LEGOLAND Birmingham. She’s the mastermind behind the centre’s MINILAND, which includes the world’s smallest Primark!
“This is the ultimate job for anyone who loves to play and get creative – especially with Lego – as where else can you be paid to release your inner child, play with Lego all day and create amazing structures?!” said Amy Langham, LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Birmingham’s general manager.
“The right candidate will have good attention to detail and creativity to bring our next mini creations to life, they will also be passionate about teaching the builders of the future by advising guests at the centre and running imaginative workshops.”
How do I become LEGOLAND Discovery Centre’s Assistant Master Model Builder?
They’re looking for someone with a genuine love for LEGO, an outgoing personality, excellent communication skills and the ability to communicate with all ages, a creative mindset, brand knowledge, and who is comfortable on camera. If this sounds like you, you have until August 27 to fill in an application on the LEGOLAND Discovery Centre website here.
Afterwards, potential candidates will be asked to submit a video of themselves completing a building challenge. If you get through this round, you’ll be asked to show off your build skills in a Brickfactor competition at LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Birmingham on Sunday, September 10. You’ll compete in front of a panel of judges, through a series of timed challenges, to earn this ultimate job.
