Father's Day Case Study

Bruce Young, 47, from Kinross in Scotland is a Lead Technician for British Gas Business and has worked with the company as an engineer since 2010.
 
Last summer Bruce’s son Scott, 22, joined the company and now assists engineers, including his dad, who visit businesses to carry out a range of work, including boiler servicing and repairs.
 
Bruce said: “It’s great working with Scott and getting to pass on my experience. He picks up everything quickly and he’s very professional. Plus, being his dad means I know how to get the best out of him – I know how he thinks. The only problem is that lunch now costs a fortune as I am paying for his too!”
 
Scott said: “I enjoy working with my dad because we get on really well. He has taught me a lot. The only downside is that we see each other all the time, because we live together too! My mum also has to put up with us talking shop all the time, but she works with my sister, so they’re just as bad!”
 
This year, Scott and Bruce will be working together on Father’s Day. But will Scott be paying for his dad’s lunch? “I suppose so! Just kidding, I definitely will. He really deserves it – he’s done a lot for me.”
