Matt Adkins: Basildon roundabout job bid man promoted

Matt Adkins hit the headlines in April when he stood at the roundabout in Basildon, Essex, armed with a placard saying he was "desperate 4 a job".

The 46-year-old father of two took a role with a cleaning firm as a result.

He has now been promoted to managing the company's landscape and gardening business.

Mr Adkins, of Wickford, was offered six jobs after pitching for work at the roundabout and now works for BizziB.
