LEGOs are one of those things you never quite grow out of. You might take a 15-year hiatus, but if someone gives you a set of blocks and lets you run wild, you’ll jump right back into it like you’re eight years old again. That’s why this LEGOLAND Discovery Center job is really for everyone. The new LEGOLAND is opening in East Rutherford, New Jersey, in spring 2021, and they need someone to work as a Master Model Builder.
The job listing explains, “The LEGO Master Model Builder is the ultimate Playmaker who is a talented LEGO builder who can make LEGO building fun and educational for our guests. You will lead workshops for the little LEGO builders of the future, LEGO Education classes for schools and groups take ownership of LEGO displays within the attraction, oversee the addition of new displays, and more.”
The new Master Model Builder must be comfortable making media appearances and being in the public eye. It’s also helpful if you have a background in model making, the ability to read drawings and sketches, and experience working with digital programs designed for building complex models. The most important thing, though, is that you have a love of LEGOs.
Later this month, LEGO will choose its final round of applicants, who will then compete in a build-off — a series of timed challenges to test their LEGO-building skills. Whoever wins the build-off will be offered the job.
Applications must be submitted by October 16.
