This summer's intake includes: James Ferguson who will be graduating from the Royal Agricultural University in Gloucestershire with a Masters degree in Rural Estate Management and is joining the Inverness team; Marcelina Hamilton from Reading University who has been studying for a Masters in Rural Land and Business Management and joins the Perth team; and Jennifer Jeffrey and Isla King both from Scotland's Rural College with degrees in Rural Business Management joining the Edinburgh and Aberdeen offices respectively.
All four come with a broad range of knowledge and experience of the rural and farming sectors - including farming on both sides of the border and breeding prize-winning lambs although the intake's skills and experiences also include a first degree in War studies, honing the art of motorcycle maintenance in Rajasthan, and swimming the Rio Grande! CKD Galbraith's expanding business will make the most of their ability to meet challenges and give them the opportunity to test, expand and apply their professional skills while supporting them as they gain experience and further qualifications.
