Hello! My name is Matt Frost and I’m mad enough to be working 52 different jobs in 52 weeks this year. I’m travelling all over the UK to try and discover a true passion. Anybody, anywhere in the UK can offer me a job for one week and all of my wages are beingdonated to The Prince’s Trust” – said Matt on www.oneweekjob.com

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 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 it seemed like a good idea not to get sacked by anyone. 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 the year full of work 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!
