Queen’s Platinum Jubilee 2 June 2022  I have emailed the Club Secretaries, Chairs and Treasures with further information about this event, to discuss how your club or County can participate in this event.


Fisher German are currently recruiting for 2022  vacancies,

Hello, My name is Marie-Ange Ehrhart (Marie), and I am Early Careers Advisor at Fisher German.

 We are a Chartered Surveyors and Property Consultants company headquartered in Ashby de la Zouch and we are trying to raise awareness of careers in property and surveying among young farmers and people with an interest in farming and rural affairs.

 We are always on the lookout for people with a farming background or agricultural knowledge as many of our roles require this. In fact, many of our colleagues have a farming background and are or have been part of YFCs.

 We are currently recruiting for 2022 vacancies, including graduate roles, placements and apprenticeships.

 Would you be able to disseminate the attached advert amongst members and subgroups of your county’s YFC?

 I am very happy to take any questions via LinkedIn, phone or email, to talk through the roles/sectors and provide tips on how to improve applications!

 Thank you very much for your time – this is very much appreciated. Do not hesitate to connect with me on LinkedIn or contact me if you have any queries at all or wish to discuss. 

 Thank you!  Marie-Ange Ehrhart , Early Careers Talent Advisor, on behalf of Fisher German LLP
