Shooting Star PR appoints Rising Star

Lincoln- based PR agency Shooting Star PR has appointed University of Lincoln student Kirsty Pavely as part of its Rising Stars scheme.

The Rising Stars scheme was put in place to develop talent and put skills into practice to prepare the students for ‘real life’ work and give them the opportunity to gain valuable work experience.

Currently studying in her second year for a degree in Marketing and Public Relations, Kirsty – from St Neots in Cambridgeshire – will be working one day a week with the agency alongside her studies.

Jez Ashberry, director of Shooting Star PR, said: “It’s great to continue working alongside the university by taking on another undergraduate. Last year we took on one student on our Rising Star scheme and it was so successful that we decided to offer two placements this year.”
