LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Melbourne Is Looking For A Master Model Builder
Are you a Melbourne LEGO fan looking for a career change? Do you dream of getting paid to build with LEGO all day? The dream job for so many AFOLs is now up for grabs.
As you may know, a new LEGOLAND Discovery Centre is opening later this year in Melbourne. The thing is you can’t have a LEGOLAND Discovery Centre without LEGO Models – and that means Master Model Builders.
In order to find the best candidate for the position a unique LEGO building talent quest called Brickfactor will be taking place on February 11-12, 2017 at Chadstone shopping centre. Brickfactor is a free event where LEGO experts compete in action packed building challenges to earn the role of Master Model Builder at LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Melbourne.
If you think you can rock the position then head here to submit your application.
To get an idea of what you are in for I’ve included a video of an American Brickfactor competition.
Also in case anybody is unsure, this isn’t a competition to win a prize and then go home. This is an audition process for an actual job! The Seek job ad has some more details on the actual job part of the whole thing;
You will be responsible for all the LEGO in the attraction, and play a key role in educating the public on how we create our amazing models. You will be in charge of the creation and maintenance of our models from the design stage to the day to day repair, replacement and redesign. We are looking for someone who has a talent for the creative and has an eye for colour and design….. obviously in LEGO building.
We are looking for a brand ambassador and key spokesperson, who can represent the brand in a positive light to the public and the media. As the face of LEGOLAND Discovery Centre, confidence and the ability to entertain large groups will be essential! You will need to be outgoing and passionate about what you do.
This role works closely with children, so a strong passion for play and learning through play is a must! Prior experience working with children is a plus but not a requirement.
This role is full time, permanent, averaging 38 hours per week and will include weekends and public holidays as required.
Alongside a competitive annual salary you can look forward to enjoying a great benefits package including a Merlin Magic pass which gives you free admission to all of Merlin’s attractions worldwide, a FUN working environment and much more!
I’ve highlighted a few key points in bold.
