Job applicants are often encouraged to include unusual hobbies and achievements on their CVs to make prospective employers sit up and take notice.
But one agency boss has added a rare talent to his own list of pastimes.
Matt Etherington, head of brand naming agency Matt Etherington Names Names, met a challenge from workmates head on when they booked him onto a five-day crash course in lorry driving.
Unfazed, Etherington passed his road test first time, on day five of the course. He says: “I’m totally hooked on driving these monsters – it’s like driving a two-bedroom bungalow.”
Etherington is, perhaps sensibly, swerving round his latest challenge – giving his teenage son driving lessons.
