My role at the ZERO2FIVE Food Industry Centre

I have worked at the ZERO2FIVE Food Industry Centre since 2009 and worked primarily on the KITE Knowledge transfer scheme being responsible for the collection and collation of outputs relating to the £5million programme.

As part of the Business Operations team my role now stretches across all ZERO2FIVE Food Industry Centre activity including the newly launched Helix programme. I will liaise with our partner companies and manage the process of collecting key performance data which is then fed back to the Welsh Government and other agency stakeholders and funders. I am part of the team that deals with contract management and resource planning. Within the team, my responsibility is the organisation and management of periodic meetings with clients to assess the on-going performance of partnerships and the collection of data for use for reporting, evaluation and for academic study.

Previous Experience

My experience is in the field of EU and Welsh Government funded projects within a university setting. Prior to 2009, I worked at the University of Glamorgan overseeing various projects in social enterprise settings and in community schools sports coaching. This role included the set up and coordination of student led projects, policy writing and liaison with community groups, schools and businesses.
