Did you ever dream of working for LEGO? You know; like playing building with LEGO-bricks all day and getting paid for it?! 😛

Are you aware that there are many LEGO career opportunities available all over the world? There might be just something that is a great fit for you!

The LEGO Group is made up of around 9,000 employees, organized into five separate Business Areas. The marketing and product (M&P) guys are responsible for developing and selling new LEGO products around the world. The global supply chain (GSC) brings LEGO play ideas from concept to reality. The community, education and direct (CED) department takes care of direct contact with consumers. The corporate center (CC) deals with the legal stuff, and the corporate finance (CF) handles the money.

As you can see there are people with all kinds of profiles and backgrounds adding value to the amazing world of LEGO! Every LEGO product is a joint effort of thousands of colleagues worldwide in design, manufacture, sales, customer service, etc.

Speaking of worldwide, there are LEGO career opportunities in the USA, UK, Denmark, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Germany, Austria, Spain, Canada, Mexico…pretty much anywhere the LEGO Group has a presence. You can check out current LEGO career opportunities here:

The application process takes 8-12 weeks from your initial application, to matching you up with job openings, to finally meet in person to see if LEGO and you are indeed a match made in heaven.

So what are you waiting for? Check out if your dream-job is available! And if you like, please share below what you would like to do working for LEGO! 😉

Tito, yeah, it happens sometimes…we have these dreams, but it never occurs to us to actually do something to make them happen. Ah, the complexity of human nature! 😆

There are actually some really nice openings at times. Of course it depends on what you are looking for, but there has been job openings for designers that looked pretty attractive, if you have the right qualifications.

That would be awesome, but I’m happy with my job now, and don’t want to move. If I got to receive a free lifetime supply of bricks though, I’d definitely be interested! 🙂

A “lifetime supply of free bricks”… that doesn’t sound like a job, that sounds like HEAVEN! 😀

hi, im currently getting out of the Marine Corps and will be moving back to chicago. I have all my life been interested in being a part of lego and all you guys do. im really interested in the GSC area . designing and taking ideas and turning them into an actual set. what should I do once im out of the military in a few weeks and am looking to pursue this?

Mitchell, nice to have a Marine over here, thank you for your service. My brother is also a Marine and lives in the Chicago area. And he is a LEGO fan too! As far as pursuing a career with the LEGO group, you can check the LEGO Careers website for openings: http://www.lego.com/en-us/careers. Also, the Chicago area has several official LEGO stores. It would be best to check out those, and see what openings and opportunities they have. Most people within the company start with entry level positions and then move up the chain.

Please note that all LEGO designers work in Billund, Denmark. So if you are interested in a designer position, you will have to move there. If you like to build but don’t want to move to Denmark, your other option is to become a model builder at a LEGO store or LEGOLAND Park. These are the people who build the large display-models at stores and parks.

Again, the best way to see what positions are open is to visit your local LEGO store and let them know what you are interested in. They should be able to guide you further. You are lucky because Chicago has a very large and established LEGO community with several stores, large conventions, etc. I know there is a store in Northbrook, one in Orland Park, one in Schaumburg, and also on in the Water Tower in downtown Chicago. Hope this helps some. 🙂

Good Morning,
I recently applied to a position in Connecticut (approx. 2 weeks ago). How long does it take to get an initial interview? I did see the chart but am wondering when or should I follow up.

Thank you!!

Peter, I would suggest to wait another week, then follow up. I would definitely follow up if you haven’t heard back by then.
