Awards at the double

TWO north Northumberland surveyors have achieved outstanding professional and academic recognition.

George F White’s Andrew Jamieson, 29, has been accepted as a member of the British Institute of Agricultural Consultants (BIAC).

Andrew, who works as a rural business consultant at George F White, grew up on Howick Estate where his father is head gardener and aboriculturist and went to school in Alnwick.

He said: “I’m delighted to have been accredited to BIAC. It’s what every rural consultant strives for and is national approval of my professional capabilities and endorsement of my rural business advice to clients.”

Robert Moore, 26, a trainee rural surveyor at George F White, has gained a distinction in the post graduate diploma in rural surveying from the College of Estate Management. This was a distance learning course that Robert has been studying for two years, while working for the George F White team at Alnwick.

Robert said: “Being able to work and gain practical experience, as well as study and learn the theory at the same time was the perfect way to develop my skills. The firm was very supportive and helpful the whole way through. To have gained a Distinction is the icing on the cake but as with any profession, there are always new developments around the corner, so I expect to be continually learning throughout my career.”

George F White is inviting anyone interested in working for the firm to send in their CV to Karen.park@georgefwhite.co.uk
