Jacob gained a Bachelor of Science (Hons) degree in Rural Enterprise and Land Management at Harper Adams University following completing his placement year with C&D Rural in 2020/2021.
He subsequently joined C&D Rural in 2022 as a graduate Land Agent where he undertakes roles such as assisting with valuations, compensation claims, farm business advisory services and Forestry matters.
Jacob is looking forward to starting his career in the rural sector with C&D and hopes to achieve his RICS chartership in the near future. Jacob comes from a livestock and arable farm in Derbyshire but moved to Cumbria to explore the Lake District and Scotland, and it has very quickly become home! Jacob is currently over halfway through completing all 214 Wainwrights and can be found scaling fells most weekends. His other hobbies include paddle boarding and playing hockey.
