According to the job description, this is a guest-facing role, where you would be part of creating and delivering a world-class experience for visitors. You would be designing, building, removing, installing, and repairing all models at the attraction, from minifigures in MINILAND to life-sized builds for events.
The Master Model Builder is given design briefs now and again, but is also encouraged to let their creative juices flow when coming up with ideas for new builds. There is also the opportunity to lead workshops and teach visitors the secret to building extraordinary LEGO creations.
The top requirements for the role include “a passion for the LEGO brand”, as well as proven experience in model making or crafts, strong artistic vision, and the ability to read drawings and sketches pertaining to model production. If that sounds like you, then start your application soon. Jobs like these don’t come around too often.
To apply, you’ll need to make an account with Merlin Entertainments’ People Portal and follow the instructions there. Top applicants will be invited to compete in a building competition on May 18th and 19th at the center, which is located at Somerville’s Assembly Row.

- I am a freelance journalist based in Edinburgh, writing about all things nerdy, from Star Wars and Marvel through to LEGO flowers and Gundam. When I’m not writing, you’ll likely find me trying to stop my two pet rabbits from chewing everything I own, meaning I essentially work two full-time jobs at once.
