Dream job alert: Legoland is hiring model builders

By Kevin
Do you have “LEGO building experience” and “a good knowledge of LEGO parts”? Then you might qualify for the job of your childhood dreams: building stuff for Legoland attractions around the world.

Last week, Merlin Entertainment, which owns Legoland theme parks and other attractions around the world, opened its new “secret LEGO factory” in Winter Haven, Florida. According to news channel Fox 13, the hub has hired 50 model builders and designers, and is looking to hire at least 20 more.

While there is a Legoland park nearby, the factory creates models for all Legoland theme parks. Outside of the United States, Legoland has sites in Denmark, United Kingdom, United Arab Emirates, Germany, and Malaysia.

Here’s the actual job description:

This individual builds LEGO models in our off-site Model Shop- MMM Studios. Must have LEGO building experience and be able to design and build sturdy, accurate, complicated, safe and installable LEGO models for a wide variety of LEGOLAND attractions including miniature scale models and/or life sized organic models from prototypes, diagrams or computer generated instructions. This position requires strong communication during design and building of models, good organization during the completion and documentation phases of the projects and a willingness to complete all tasks necessary to creating and installing models and displays.
Requires previous experience in LEGO model building, (architectural and/or sculptural), basic computer knowledge, a good knowledge of LEGO parts, good communication skills, ability to give and receive constructive criticism, ability to work in a team and a positive attitude. Strong focus, concentration, good craftsmanship, patience and a sense of humor are a must. Artistic education, background, or experience helpful but not required.

The job only requires a high school diploma, though you will have to take a “pre-placement physical.”

The intense hiring process

includes timed builds, “freestyle” builds, and multiple interviews.

Previous builders have come from a variety of backgrounds, ranging from

engineers to teachers. The Orlando Sentinel reported last year that

Merlin even found some applicants at LEGO fan events.
