Life-changing injury spurs Matt to try 52 jobs in a year
It's an ambitious task by anyone's standards.
Matt Frost from Cornwall is attempting to work a different job every week for a year – including stints as a stuntman, farmer and charity worker.
The 29-year-old embarked on the unusual career plan after suffering a head injury and rethinking his life.
In June last year Matt, from Liskeard, was working as a retail manager in London when a large box of metal brackets fell on his head.

He said the injury was a turning point in his life.
"The injury woke me up to the fact that maybe this wasn't what I really wanted to be doing with my life.
"I'm sure many people suffer such crises, but this one was more than the usual itch," he said. "I will consider any job I'm offered and give it my best shot.
"I've already been offered jobs including farming, working for the Prince's Trust and even as a stuntman on a film."
This week he is working at Onshore Media, a PR company in Plymouth, busily sending out press releases and packing up 200 boxes of promotional bonbons.
He hopes to collect a different employer every week with an eye to eventually landing a permanent job.
Anyone, anywhere in the UK, can offer him a job for one week and any money paid by his employers will be donated to The Prince's Trust.
Matt said: "If in the process of this big adventure I can inspire people to at least try something that they've previously held back from doing, then I'll get more worth from this than I have with any previous workplace successes."
Simon Whittam, of Onshore Media, said he would recommend taking Matt on to other employers.
He said: "We thought it was an inspired idea when we heard about Matt's plan for the year, so were delighted to invite him to join us for a week.
"Working within the communications business we're always looking for innovative ways of communicating information on our clients so Matt's unique perspective is a great fit.
"He has been a hard worker and enthusiastic throughout.
"We'd recommend any business to take him on and give him a glowing reference every time."
