A firm of chartered surveyors in Penrith is investing in the future after taking on another student surveyor, Edward Adams.
Edward has joined Robson & Liddle to assist with its work advising farmers and landowners across the North of England and Southern Scotland.
20-year-old Edward will spend the next year with the firm before returning to Harper Adams University to complete a rural property management degree.
Originally from Bicester, Oxfordshire, he is the firms fifth student surveyor and will work with the team on a variety of matters, including estate management, planning and development, landlord and tenant issues and valuations.
Edward, who is currently living in Great Salkeld, Penrith, during his placement, said: “It’s really interesting to be able to learn from my skills in a different landscape. I’m really enjoying the variety of work and getting the practical experience, putting what I have learnt into practice.”
Julie Liddle, a director of Robson & Liddle, said: “We have had several successful placement students over the years, and it’s great to now welcome Edward to our team. The paid placement schemes allow students to get valuable industry experience which sets them up for their future careers.”
Outside of work Edward is a keen rugby player and is enjoying getting out for walks in the Lakeland Fells.
