First things first – tell us a little bit about yourself
Hi, I’m Tara and I’m a part of the Marketing team here at Bar2 as our Marketing Executive.
Throughout school I was never one of those kids who knew what career path they wanted to take when they were older. After finishing sixth form, I enrolled into a business apprenticeship not knowing where it would take me or what I’d like to become. However, by studying modules in digital marketing throughout my apprenticeship, I shortly realised my love for all things creative! Upon finishing my apprenticeship I decided marketing was the route I wanted to go down, then making the leap to Bar2 and now 6 months down the line it has been the best decision I’ve ever made!
Outside of work, I love socialising with my family and friends, travelling and baking lots of scrumptious goods!
How have you been making the most of lockdown?
Lockdown for me has given me the opportunity to work on both my mind and body. Pre-covid I was never a very physically active person, however coming out of lockdown, exercise is now a regular part of my routine and has helped me identify the suitable work-life balance I’d never have imagined before.
Although lockdown has been one of the most challenging times I have had to experience, I can safely say I now look back to find it one of the most rewarding, having come out of it a completely different person, both physically and mentally!
Joining Bar2 in the peak of the pandemic, I instantly were provided with the unlimited support and resources that I needed to work from home. This straight away showed me the huge team network Bar2 followed and their dedication to supporting their staff no matter what the circumstances are.
Not only this, Bar2 are constantly growing and evolving, both as a business and as a team, having recruited continually throughout the pandemic and developed new services and innovative ways of working. I can’t wait to develop and grow with Bar2 in the future.
What’s your favourite thing about being our Marketing Executive?
What I enjoy most about my role as Marketing Executive is that no working day is the same! I can almost guarantee I find myself chopping and changing about each day with different new projects to work on and campaigns to build.
I also love the flexibility in terms of creativity that my role provides me with – there really is no limit to how experimental you want to be when it comes to marketing!
