“We have a great week set up for Matt.  He will be working with the Liskeard Neighbourhood Team, Plymouth control room as well with the public order and the evening and night time economy teams.”
Matt Frost was a retail manager in a shop in London but a life changing accident at work meant he had to take some significant time off to recover.
Matt said: “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.”
Matt decided he wanted to explore what other possible work opportunities were out there.  Matt discovered Canadian, Sean Aiken, had completed a full year of job hopping and he wanted to do the same in the UK.  The rest is history and he continues to find one week jobs across the UK in 2013.
