The post further describes the roles of the job, telling us:

“The Master Model Builder takes ownership of the LEGOLAND Discovery Center creative workshop, is a talented LEGO builder who can make LEGO Building fun, leading workshops for the little LEGO builders of the future!
“As well as having the talent and creativity to build with LEGO, and inspiring children (aged 3-10), the Master Model Builder must also attend media appearances and be comfortable in the public eye. The Master Model Builder will participate in building events, corporate events and PR related activities which will require them to serve as a spokesperson for the attraction.”

The recruiters will choose 50 candidates who will then have to go through the ‘Brickfactor Challenge’, with the winner earning the highly-coveted role.
