Each candidate completed building tests to showcase their talents and creativity; seven will be chosen for their ultimate dream job.
Once hiring is complete, the seven LEGO Model Designers, as well as 40 new LEGO Model Builders, will work together at a hub for Merlin Magic Making in Lake Wales. The 40 LEGO Model Builder positions will be posted later this week on LEGOLAND.com and MerlinCareers.com.
“We welcome and encourage candidates with diverse backgrounds to apply. I believe that the best candidate is one who has a passion to inspire creativity in others, after all, at LEGOLAND Resorts and LEGOLAND Discovery Centers, the kid is the customer,” said Rob Griffin, US LEGO Production Manager.
Scheduled to be fully operational by fall, this will be the sixth team of its kind in the world. It will support the ever-expanding LELAND® Resorts and LEGOLAND® Discovery Centers around the globe.
