Ruby Matthews has a plan. Twelve jobs in twelve months, until she finds the one of her dreams... After an unexpected redundancy, Ruby begins to question her priorities. Inspired by a quote from Kahlil Gibran about loving your work, she launches her mission to find the ideal job. Her year of gainful (and sometimes painful) employment include nannying for clients in the South of France; dealing with embarrassing ailments in a Harley Street Clinic; waiting tables in a buzzy Soho cafe; and meeting the celebs of years gone by in a home for retired actors. And even though love is longer top of her list, relationships just start happening along the way - which sees her handing out some P45s of her own! But will any of the jobs or men she meets see her dreams come true? Or will Ruby just end up back where she started?
