The new LEGOLAND Discovery Centre in Birmingham is looking to recruit the attraction’s official Master Model Builder ready for when it opens in the City Centre this summer.

The much-coveted position, which is being billed as the nation’s dream job, is likely to be filled by a creative dreamer, practical builder, someone with a passion for the LEGO brick and ultimately, be able to see the world through the eyes of a child.

The children themselves have had their say on the credentials required from their perfect candidate, specifying an imagination as big as the world, rosy cheeks and a nice smile all essential qualities. Grumpy faced adults need not apply.

Bertie, the attraction’s life-sized LEGO man, has already been sizing up commuters passing through New StreetStation and out on the streets of the City Centre looking to ditch the day job for the once in a lifetime role.

Amy Langham, General Manager for LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Birmingham, said: “There really are only a select handful of people across the globe fortunate enough to hold the coveted title of Master Model Builder and we’re eager to crown one of our very own for the City.”

LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Birmingham will open this summer at Arena Birmingham, directly opposite the National SEA LIFE Centre. Approximately 70 additional jobs will be created, alongside the Master Model Builder role, from management level to guest hosts.

Amy Langham, added: “We’ve listened to what the children want too and will make sure we find someone fit for the job that meets all their criteria, after all, it’s their attraction!” Interest can be registered online at of the job application window opening later this week
