It's a very original way to get noticed.  But what do the rest of us do if we don't get a chance to show our wares on the Fourth Plinth, especially if you don't want to go down the road of the naked plinther?

Volunteer - it's a fantastic way to gain new skills, make an impact and add something different to your CV.

We know there are volunteers out there who have got a job through volunteering - if you're one of them we'd love to hear from you and so would other people wanting to get a great job too.
