Have you got what it takes to become Master Builder at Legoland Discovery Centre Manchester?


Fancy being paid to play all day?

Legoland Discovery Centre Manchester is recruiting for a Master Model Builder – the ultimate job for anyone who would rather play than work.

The salary has not been disclosed but a similar post was advertised at Lego’s Birmingham Discovery Centre earlier this year at a salary of £27,000.

The job is the first opening of its kind in the Barton Square attraction’s eight year history. But expect competition to be fierce as the position is one of only 24 in the world.

Legoland Discovery Centre Manchester’s panel of judges – the attraction’s very own Creative Crew aged just six to ten years old – will put applicants through their paces.

They will challenge applicants to prove they’re up to the job with a series of interviews and a creative build-off, where applicants will have the opportunity to show off their skills.

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 of 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.”

Applicants are encouraged to increase their chances of competing at the build-off by sharing their creative ideas and designs via social media using the hashtag #masteroflego.

Based at the popular Barton Square Legoland attraction, the successful applicant will be top of the class in creativity, design and brick-building.  They will also have a fun disposition, and enjoy working with kids and families in free-build workshops.

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.”
