Lego fanatics are being given the chance to bag their dream job – to build Lego models all day and get paid for it.

Legoland Discovery Centre Birmingham is recruiting for two Assistant Master Model Builders to continue building on their display of Lego masterpieces and to inspire the next generation of builders.

Potential candidates for the two positions will compete in a ‘Brickfactor’ competition to reveal the best builders through a series of timed challenges, to be in with a chance of taking on the special role.

As well as running creative workshops to teach visitors how to build their own wonderful creations, the new assistants will also support the existing Master Model Builder, Michelle Thompson, with her busy roster of creations.

Michelle, who says that being the Master Model Builder is her ‘dream job’, is an expert at building, repairing and maintaining LEGO structures throughout the centre and has been honing her brick-building skills on the job for five years.

In that time, she has built countless mini masterpieces at the centre’s Miniland – which features a tiny replica of the city of Birmingham – including the world’s smallest Primark, made from almost 3,000 Lego bricks.

The Assistant Master Model Builders will not only help create more of these amazing showpieces, including special occasion builds for Halloween, Christmas and other holidays, but they’ll interact with guests to help them build on their imaginations and create Lego-inspired displays.

In addition to Michelle’s experienced hands, the centre also benefits from the brick-tastic skills of its very own Mini Master Model Builder – 12-year-old Harry Hill.

Harry beat out the extensive competition earlier this year to win the title of the site’s Mini Master Model Builder and he regularly helps with the builds in the attraction, including a recent display to celebrate the King’s Coronation.

To support the growing team and become one of Birmingham’s Assistant Master Model Builders, submit an application by 27 August via this form.

Potential candidates will then be asked to submit a video of themselves completing a building challenge, before showcasing their skills in the Brickfactor competition at Legoland Discovery Centre Birmingham on Sunday 10 September.

Master Model Builder Michelle, Mini Master Model Builder Harry and the site’s General Manager Amy Langham will act as judges to decide which contestants will take on the job.
