Apply to have a part-funded technical affiliate in your company

The HELIX Knowledge Transfer Programme is operated by ZERO2FIVE Food Industry Centre. This programme employs technical 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 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 part-funded affiliate is employed by ZERO2FIVE and therefore National Insurance, employment risks etc are the responsibility of ZERO2FIVE.

Company applications are being accepted for Technical Affiliates between Monday 15th April and Friday 3rd May.
