Lifting the Lid – a peek at what it’s like to be Steve Bradley?

Well, we all know that no two days are the same, and that is so true with my line of work.  I can be fitting a new set of radiators one day and the next finding the source of a particularly tricky leak or undertaking a gas inspection. Steve Bradley

However, one thing that does remain the same is my attitude to each day.  Of course, it helps that I love my job and have an amazing apprentice to work with as well as a kind, loving family. 

Morning Routine

But what really motivates me is doing a good job, making my customers happy and ensuring that they get the best possible service.  To do this I stick to a morning routine.  My alarm goes off at 5.15am (it may seem like a rather early time for some). I take inspiration from the peace and tranquillity that an early morning start can give.

Starting with a spot of meditation to focus my mind (if you haven’t tried it… give it a go, you’ll be amazed at how it can really help you to focus and yet feel refreshed afterwards).

Followed by a good work out at the gym (yes, a glutton for punishment too ;0).

I also take time to reflect and appreciate what I have. As Robert Louis Stevenson says “Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds that you plant”.

Beginning each day as I mean to go on with an upbeat mind, with gratitude and a focus on not what there is to do, but on what I can get done; I’m all set, fired up and raring to go.

I meet with my apprentice – the talented Jason.  We plan our working day. With a strong ethos of partnership and education going hand in hand, I work alongside Jason so that he gets to upskill, increase his knowledge and learn best practice. Of course, it certainly helps having someone keen, dedicated and always willing to learn!

What makes our day go quickly and enjoyably is the interaction with our customers; finding out how they are, learning about them and their families and sharing stories with them.

End of Day Routine

At the end of each day knowing that all of my customers are happy, gives Jason and I great job satisfaction, essentially, it’s a win-win for all.
Before powering down for the evening (I make it a priority to switch off all electronic devices – phone/laptop etc.) by 8.30pm, I make sure that I take some time to reflect on the day, think about the “wins” and again look at gratitude for the day.  Having an evening routine keeps me consistent and working towards my business goals.

Ending the evening by spending some well-deserved quality time with my lovely wife and children. Steve Bradley

  • What Our Clients Say

    Trustworthy, reliable, friendly and brilliant at what they do…

    We have used Bradley Plumbing for many years within the Sheffield Methodist Circuit and they are very good. They have provided us with gas inspections, installations, callouts, service and repairs on gas, heating and plumbing issues plus bath installations. No job is too small or too big for them. Their response and customer service are excellent and they are great to work with.  I would definitely recommend them.


  • What Our Clients Say

    As a private landlord I always need reliable trades who I can trust to carry out work for me when needed, as I don’t always see the end result of the work it the property already has a tenant in place.

    Since I’ve been using Steve and the team at Bradley Plumbing and Heating, I have never looked back. Weather its just been a Gas Safe check or a full heating system I’ve always been given honest advice on the best way forward. The solution has always been completed on time and within the price or budget given before the work commenced.
