Tara Lawford

Executive, Marketing Communications

BA (Hons)

I became a part of Castlefield’s growing marketing communications team in February 2019. I left University in 2016 with a degree in politics, but it wasn’t long before I realised that I wanted to make a career out of my artistic talents. After graduation I took an opportunity to move to Romania to work as an English teacher. Over the two years I spent there I successfully completed a Diploma in Graphic Design through a distance learning program. Subsequently I gained experience in both design and marketing through working as a freelancer for a wide variety of international clients.

After moving back to the UK, I was so pleased to be given the chance to work for a company like Castlefield. I feel that during my time here I’ve been able to greatly benefit from the company’s culture and values. I look forward to developing my skills further with the help of Castlefield Academy.


Outside of work, during the week I train as part of a local netball team. At weekends I enjoy taking daytrips to the nearby countryside and visiting my hometown of Shrewsbury. I’m besotted with my pet cat Molly whom I rescued from the streets of Bucharest and brought back to England.
