It’s a dream job for kids and parents alike – imagine getting paid to spend your days building with Lego! That’s exactly what Legoland theme parks are looking for in their latest job advertisement.
Building with Lego has been a cherished joy of so many childhoods over the years. The challenge of following a blueprint design, the creative freedom of styling your own and of course the puffed-chest pride that comes from building something great is familiar to us all. Now you can have the chance to relive those magic moments, but on a grander scale, building for Legoland theme parks.
Yes, Merlin Entertainment, which runs the series of super fun theme parks, recently advertised that it is looking for 20 new people to join its team of builders. The construction team is already 50 strong and spend their time designing and creating the amazing Lego structures that delight all who visit the parks.
Sounds like a dream come true, right? Alas, the job is not for novices. The ad reads that successful candidates “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.” Whew! That sounds like some serious Lego skills.
They ad also states that a sense of humour is a “must” – showing that even though professional Lego building may be hard work, it is still done with a smile and a laugh.
