Graduate Ruth Appleby has landed the rural job of her dreams.

She has joined the planning and development team at George F White’s Alnwick office as an APC planning and development surveyor.

Ruth will be working with Richard Garland and his team, providing specialist planning and development property advice to clients with a focus on maximising value.

Ruth recently graduated from Northumbria University with a first class honours degree in planning and development surveying, where she was awarded the Paul Simpson prize for Best Final Year Student.

She said: “Being born and brought up in the North East, it was always my intention to try and find a graduate position with a firm in Northumberland, and so I am delighted to have joined Alnwick’s team at George F White, one of the region’s most established team of chartered surveyors and property specialists.

“In my short time with the company I have been exposed to a wide range of projects, gaining an insight into strategic and development planning, having been involved in large scale residential development sites, public consultation events, agricultural diversification, residential conversions and much more.”
