Apply to have a part-funded technical or sales and marketing affiliate in your company
The HELIX Knowledge Transfer Programme is operated by ZERO2FIVE Food Industry Centre. This programme employs technical or sales and marketing affiliates and embeds them in Welsh food and drink manufacturing and processing businesses for at least a year with full support from ZERO2FIVE.
There are a number of benefits to the host company:
- a motivated, graduate level affiliate based within the business providing technical or marketing assistance;
- support of the experienced staff at ZERO2FIVE who coach and mentor the affiliate;
- access and use of ZERO2FIVE’s facilities which include development kitchens, consumer sensory suite and pilot kitchens
The above is provided at a cost to the company of £10,000 pa. The affiliate is employed by ZERO2FIVE and therefore National Insurance, employment risks etc are the responsibility of ZERO2FIVE.
There are two different affiliate roles available for companies:
- Technical Affiliate
- Sales and Marketing Affiliate
Company applications are now being accepted and the deadline is October 31st.
