Bright Maintenance Services Ltd. is owned and run by me, Stuart Day.
I’m originally from Cheltenham where I initially worked for Robert Hitchins as a general labourer at their Head Office in Boddington. The gardens at the Head Office were extremely large and I helped the gardening team with the maintenance and upkeep of the estate. Being flexible and always willing to help out where needed I also assisted the chippies and the builders with roof repairs, carpentry, fixing bathrooms etc. After a while I decided that perhaps an outside job was not the career I’d envisaged! I didn’t want to work outside in the rain so thought I’ll get an office job! And so I did…but not any old office job!
I got a job at The Cheltenham & Gloucester Building Society, as it used to be known as, to train to be a Bank Manager.
I was an excellent trainee and ended up being a Branch Manager for various Cheltenham & Gloucester Building Society branches for 17 years until sadly the recession happened and I was made redundant along with many thousands of other employees across the UK.
