We're only a few weeks into the year and we already have five new additions to the team at Paperclip HQ! Today we're meeting Tara and Lorenzo, our new Marketing Coordinators...
It's great to have you on board! Tell us a bit about your background...
Lorenzo: I study Translation with minor studies in International Marketing at my university in Italy. The reason why I chose this university is that I have always been passionate about languages, communication and travelling. I have also lived in Denmark as an exchange student for a year, and that helped me realize that I wanted to get more international experiences, so here I am!
Tara: I studied advertising design at USW. I was a strategic planning executive at a media agency previously in Bristol. I have had internships in account handling and planning too.
What made you apply for the role?
Tara: I applied because I have always wanted to work in Cardiff and my previous job experience had been in a marketing role. I’ve had internships in advertising and marketing and thought I'd be suited to this position.T
Lorenzo: Every student in my university has to do an internship before graduating, and it can be done locally or abroad. I’ve always been quite open-minded, so I wanted to challenge myself and try and get a real internship that would really help me improve my skills while working on something cool. Looking around erasmusintern.org I found Paperclip and I applied. It was exactly what I was looking for!
What do you want to achieve during your time with Paperclip?
Tara: I want to combine my love for creative projects with my interest in marketing and work closely with a small team dynamic and see the company achieve its targets and continue to grow.
Lorenzo: My goal in life is to get enough experience to create my own company. Ideally, I would like to live in Italy, but who knows?
And what do you get up to in your spare time?
Tara: I play hockey three times a week and enjoy going to the gym, but in contrast I also enjoy eating/drinking cocktails out a lot too.
Lorenzo: Reading is something that takes a lot of my time: I enjoy books related to marketing and startups, but also fiction. Other than that, I like walking and hanging out with friends: I am a very chatty person, I very much enjoy being surrounded with people and talk about many different topics.
It's great to have you on our team! Good luck in your new roles.
