Wilson Wraight is delighted to announce that as our Agricultural Management Consultant Scholarship with Harper Adams commences for a sixth year, we have taken on three placement students for the coming 12 months.
Having grown up on his family’s arable farm in North Warwickshire, Tim Cotterill wishes to carry forward his passion for combinable and root crop production during his time at Wilson Wraight. Tim has now completed two years studies of BSc Agriculture with Farm Business Management and is looking forward to applying the techniques and knowledge he has learnt so far to real world scenarios in the sector.
Rebecca Smith is currently studying BSc (Hons) Agriculture with Farm Business Management. Growing up on a dairy farm in Cumbria and having opportunities to be involved in both the practical and business side of the enterprise has piqued her interest in agricultural consultancy. Rebecca is looking forward to utilising the expertise around her to further develop her knowledge of consultancy.
Alice Robbins is looking forward to working alongside the team and providing advice to clients, especially during a period of change for UK agriculture. Coming from a Game farming background Alice has always been interested in farming, but since beginning her studies in Agriculture with Farm Business Management at Harper Adams University that passion and interest has furthered. Alice has gained some valuable practical experience across a range of livestock and arable enterprises and is ready to put theory into practice!
Partner Will Mitcham commented, “Wilson Wraight are proud to continue our relationship with Harper Adams University and the Scholarship Programme. Every year the quality of applicants improves, making the selection process increasingly difficult for us and this is testament to the excellent work Harper Adams are doing. We are delighted to offer three students the opportunity for a placement with us and look forward to welcoming Alice, Becca and Tim to the team”.
