Ryan named as rising star in arboriculture sector

Tuesday 8 Aug 2017

A Myerscough College arboriculture graduate has been recognised as one to watch in the sector by the Institute of Chartered Foresters.

Ryan Charnock was named as a recipient of an ICF student award, which recognise distinguished learners as ones to watch. Ryan graduated with BSc (Hons) in Arboriculture & Urban Forestry earlier this summer.

The awards are designed to build valuable connections between the industry and the UK’s rising forestry and arboricultural talent. Ryan was presented with his award for the ICF Top Dissertation at the Myerscough College H.E graduation ceremony in July in recognition of his academic achievement.

Winners of the influential award received a one-year ICF Associate membership subscription – a valuable platform for starting a career, offering the opportunity to develop professionally and expand your network of forestry and arboricultural peers. Associate membership is the first step to chartered status, and seen as necessary or desirable by many leading employers.

ICF Executive Director, Shireen Chambers FICFor congratulated the winners, highlighting the importance of supporting young professionals’ initiatives within the sector:

“The Institute is delighted to congratulate the winners of the ICF Student Award 2017.

“As the UK’s professional body for foresters and arboriculturists, ICF strongly believes in supporting new emerging talent, right from the start of their career journey.

“The Institute welcomes the 2017 ICF Student Award winners as new Associate members of the Institute. We hope the winners take advantage of the opportunities that come with belonging to a chartered institute through networking, events, job alerts, news and resources to help enhance their career. We wish them all the best for the future.”
