Grace Oakey, 3rd Year Rural Property Management Student at Harper Adams University

Grace Oakey, a 20 year old third year Rural Property Management Student, from Harper Adams University has been working for C&D Rural Ltd for several months now. Originally from Northumberland Grace ‘flew the nest’ two and half years ago to move down to Shropshire to undergo her studies. She is now in her 3rd year which presents opportunity for all students to find their own placement and undergo 12-14 months of practical experience for a company in their chosen field of study. Grace said “I chose to do my placement with C&D Rural because I liked the close contact of a small office and I felt that I could be a valuable asset of the team fairly quickly, getting involved with as much as possible and utilising my time here proactively”. In addition she also enjoys the fact she can be heavily involved with both English and Scottish legislation allowing her to increase her knowledge in rural property law.

She further commented;

“I find working here at C&D Rural relates to my course as I can see things being put into practise on an industrial level… So far during my time here at the company I have undergone a broad spectrum of tasks including rent collection and probate farm valuations with some of the land agents across the county.”

Nicholas Mellish, who also joined the company recently as a land agent commented;

“The purpose of this placement is to allow Grace to apply her knowledge that she has learnt in the classroom at Harper Adams University. This is a great opportunity for Grace, and I am confident she will one day make a fantastic Chartered Surveyor”.

Grace aspires to graduate from Harper Adams with a Bsc Hons degree in Rural Property Management and go on to do her assessment of professional competence to then hopefully become a fully qualified Chartered Surveyor and MRICS.

Keep up the good work Grace!
