Aberdeen mechanic crowned First Bus apprentice of the year 09 July 2012

An apprentice mechanic from First Aberdeen has been named First Bus Apprentice of the Year 2012.

Peter Christie from Bucksburn, Aberdeen saw off competition from more than 60 apprentices from throughout First's UK bus operations.

Christie, who started working for First in 2008 as a cleaner, was also awarded the company's Outstanding Mechanical Student prize at an awards ceremony at Manchester College.

"It's a fantastic feeling to have won these awards," he says. "I've progressed from cleaning buses to fixing them."

"Peter's dependability, hard work and leadership qualities impressed us while he was working as a cleaner," comments Jon Eardley, engineering director at First Aberdeen.

"We were therefore very pleased when he applied to be an apprentice. He has excelled in the last two years and I'm delighted with his progress."
