He took on this crazy but truly inspiring challenge in January 2013. The idea was to find a completely different job every week all year round. Simultaneously raising money for a charity was one of the priorities. Travelling around the UK and getting employed as a temporary worker helped him see a variety of professions and find his real cup of tea. He used to be a shop manager in London, but soon he understood what counted in life after a head injury he suffered from in 2012.

Not only did he get an insight into his potential as an employee but also avoided getting sacked. He was, among other things,:

  • a stuntman
  • a pizza boy
  • a blacksmith
  • a soldier
  • a garbage collector
  • a radio DJ
  • a film journalist
  • a locksmith
  • a game designer
  • the Mayor of London

After a year full of adventures he said: „It’s been probably the most rewarding, amazing thing I have ever had to do, but it has probably also been the toughest.” He also mentioned some disadvantages: „I’ve been sleeping on a lot of sofas, taking the cheapest possible buses, trying to group the jobs together.” At the end of an interview he said a bit about the year 2013 – „socially, it’s been an interesting one.”

Can you guess which job he has picked? After all, he is going to work in the computer games industry!
