Winter Haven, FL, USA (Oct. 31, 2012) /PRNewswire/ — LEGOLAND® Florida announced it is seeking qualified applicants for a new, in-house Master Model Builder to join its team. Essential job responsibilities include envisioning, designing and building unique LEGO® creations.
“Master Model Builders are royalty here at the park,” said General Manager Adrian Jones. “They enjoy celebrity status and when they’re not being interviewed by reporters and paparazzi, they spend eight hours a day playing in the model shop. Who in their right mind wouldn’t want this job?”
Would-be builders must first submit a short video clip of themselves and a home-made LEGO® creation. Candidates will be culled through Facebook voting, then invited to the park December 1 and 2 to participate in a series of skills tests. Details on the video submission and the search are available at http://Florida.LEGOLAND.com/MMB.
“In all seriousness, this is the most important job at the park,” said Jones. “Our builders typically have a life-long love of LEGO, are wildly imaginative, extraordinarily detailed and focused and just love what they do. If you have a passion for play, we encourage you to apply.”
The new Master Model Builder will be expected to report for duty January 1 and will join two other builders and a team of animators and technicians to build and maintain the signature LEGO models featured throughout the 150-acre family theme park.
The park features more than 50 rides, shows and attractions designed for families with children ages 2 to 12. LEGOLAND Florida is located 45 minutes between Orlando and Tampa.
