Legoland Discovery Centre Manchester is recruiting and it’s the ultimate dream role.
The position of Master Model Builder will see the successful applicant tasked to play all day, every day, and not ‘work’ a day in their life.
The unique position is one of only 24 in the world, less than a fifth of the number of trained astronauts! Putting the applicants through their paces will be Legoland Discovery Centre Manchester’s toughest panel of judges – the attraction’s very own Creative Crew aged just six to ten years old.
The mini panel will challenge applicants to prove their worthiness through a series of interviews and a creative build off, where applicants will have the opportunity to show they have ‘Bricks of Talent’.
The role, the first opening of its kind in the Barton Square attraction’s eight year history, boasts a generous salary and is anticipated to attract thousands of applications.
Successful applicants will then be challenged to create the ultimate inspirational build, in response to the Creative Crew’s own design brief.
A public event will provide fans with the opportunity to comment on their favourite and get hands-on themselves.
“This is a hugely exciting time at Legoland Discovery Centre Manchester,” says Jenn McDonough, General Manager Manchester Cluster, Merlin Entertainments. “Such is the success of our popular family attraction, that we now need a second Master Model Builder to join the fast-paced and brilliantly creative team here, to provide guests with an even more memorable and fun experience whilst visiting the attraction.”
Creative Crew member Samuel Barker, aged 10, from Longton added: “I think a Master Model Builder should be imaginative, know what they’re doing with the Lego! And, be a good, fun person to be around.”
Applicants are encouraged to create ‘stand-out’ upon registering for the role and to increase their chances of bagging a seat to compete at the build-off through sharing their creative ideas and designs via social media using the hashtag #masteroflego.
Based at the ever-popular Barton Square Legoland attraction, the successful Lego fanatic crowned Master Model Builder, will be top of the class in creativity, design and brick-building. They will also be of a fun disposition working with kids and families in free-build workshops.
