Lincoln PR, marketing and digital agency Shooting Star has welcomed two Rising Star interns to its growing team after opening a second office in Newark earlier this year.

Tatiana Davey and Amelia White are based at its Lincoln and Newark offices respectively.

“I’m really pleased to be working with Tatiana, who has already demonstrated how capable and passionate she is.”

Senior account manager Kerri Saxby said: “I’m thrilled to have welcomed Amelia to the Newark office after opening it just three-and-a-half months ago; she is a fantastic addition to the team.

“The Newark office is going from strength to strength and I’m excited to see what the future holds for us.”
