Looking for a Playful Job? Legoland Is Hiring a Master Model Builder

Stop me if any of these scenarios ring a bell:

Your family’s feet are irreparably damaged from stepping on the thousands of Lego bricks that were constantly scattered around your childhood home.

You’ve argued that Christian Bale’s Batman couldn’t hold a candle to the Lego Batman.

When Lego released its biggest set ever, a staggering 7,541-piece Millennium Falcon, you scoffed, said “Piece-a-cake” and it’s now proudly on display in your room.  

Sound like you? Then you’re in luck, because a dream job that fits your skill set has opened up.

Legoland Discovery Center Columbus is on the hunt for the next Master Model Builder, so if you have a passion for model building and you’re willing to move to Ohio, keep on reading.

Become a Master Model Builder for LEGO

As I’m sure you can guess, the No. 1 requirement for this job is a love of all things Lego.

But aside from your brick-building passion, you’ve got to have the skills to back it up, because this isn’t a normal job application — it’s a competition.

Hopeful applicants must travel to Columbus, Ohio, on May 5 for the two-day Brick Factor competition and must out-build the best of the best to earn this coveted position.  

The winner of the contest will be offered a full-time position at Legoland Discovery Center Columbus, which is set to open Fall 2018.

What You’ll Do

So what, exactly, does a Master Model Builder do?

On top of constructing awe-inspiring, large-scale Lego models, the job also includes mentoring children in model-building workshops and making media appearances on behalf of the company.

So if you’ve got the charisma of, well, a Lego, then you might not make the cut.

The job listing doesn’t give pay details but does say the Master Model Builder will get a “competitive salary” plus a benefits package and free entry to all Merlin attractions (Madame Tussauds, anyone?).

And let’s not forget: You’ll get to handle all the Lego bricks your heart desires.

Think you’ve got what it takes? Then head over to the job listing to enter the competition. But don’t dawdle — the deadline is April 25.
