Hello I'm
Jennifer Roberts 1064/17

Membership BAIML

Membership Type Full Member

Membership Number 1064/17

Renewal Date 31/12/2024

My qualifications allow me to confidently manage a variety of activities including canoeing, kayaking, mountain walking and exploring (summer and winter), rock climbing and abseiling and The Duke of Edinburgh's Award expedition training and assessment. I also have experience of running sessions in gorge scrambling, orienteering, archery, raft building, coasteering and low ropes. Some of these sessions make use of my paddling qualifications - I am a Level 2 Paddlesport Coach and a 4* Open Canoe leader (with White Water Safety and Rescue).
I have worked with a variety of groups at centres in North Wales and Scotland, including school groups, charities, families and adults. A portion of the work with these groups included expeditions and residential courses over multiple days, using different instructional styles but with a focus on inspiring and enthusing, predominantly, young people. I enjoy introducing people to new experiences, and particularly helping people to achieve things of which they didn’t think they were capable and it was gratifying to see different members of these groups learning new skills and developing relationships.
I have a relaxed and friendly manner and try hard to make people feel comfortable in my company, as well as confident in my ability to help them. Please take a look at my CV for specific details of the work I have completed.

After a childhood spent in the city, it is no surprise that I wanted to get out and explore the world. I now spend my time focusing on adventures and helping others to achieve their goals in the outdoors. This hasn’t always been the case. I worked as a Marketing Manager in Oxford for ten years before a major career change into the outdoors, where my excellent communication skills, customer care and passion for the mountains are very useful. I am a qualified International Mountain Leader and member of BAIML, splitting my time between the UK and Italy. It takes many years of dedication to develop the required skills to qualify as an International Mountain Leader and this qualification is kept up to date with regular CPD. I am also an accredited DofE trainer, supervisor and assessor working throughout the UK and abroad training and assessing candidates on Bronze, Silver and Gold expeditions.
