My 52 jobs in a year ; Shop worker Matt tests roles to find new career [Eire Region] [Mirror (UK)]

(Mirror (UK) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) ADVENTUROUS Matt Frost was so bored working in a shop he left - and tried 52 different jobs in a year.

His work experience marathon included being a stuntman, radio host, surfing instructor and personal assistant to This Morning TV star Phillip Schofield.

Matt, 30, said yesterday: "It's been amazing. But it has made me realise it's crucial to get on with people you work with. But I don't think I'd be a career adviser." His chance for a change came after a box fell on his head while working at a store in 2012. During two months off, he arranged one- week work experience slots and then quit the shop. He rated a special needs school his most rewarding job - and a waiter his hardest.

But despite offers Matt, from Liskeard, Cornwall, still has not decided his future. He is "having a week off " to think.
