Okay, well we all know hard work pays off and Stephen most definitely put in the hours. Stephen, who is known for putting in 10 hour shifts and even working as an on call Plumber at night a couple times a week. Well when you're earning £210,000 a year, I think we all would! Here's what Stephen had to say,

"Every day is fun. You can go to a place where some woman has water gushing through the ceilings and is crying, so it's a nice feeling when you stop the water and make her happy"

"I can't really see myself stopping any time soon, to be honest. I enjoy my work. I'm a worker. I'll be working till I drop, I think. On a Friday night, when people ask if I want to go for a beer, I am shattered. So it's straight home to the family."

Time to re-train?


Well please click here if you're really considering it. Putting in the hours during the week and having the weekend to yourself is a life a lot of us already live. However, unfortunately not all of us have acquired the skills and training to earn as much as Stephen!

Is it finally time?...
