An advantage of operating for over 30 years in the outdoors is that we have built a portfolio of over 40 highly experienced freelance staff, many of whom work solely for us.

Nigel Painter MBE, ML (Summer and Winter), IML.

Nigel works as a freelance instructor solely for Wildcountry Consultants. When he is not working as a Course Director or Instructor for us in the wilder areas of the UK he is generally to be found in the air on a WWII Bomber as a non commissioned officer in the RAF.

Nigel is a fully qualified International Mountain Leader and British Winter Mountain Leader.

In 2015 Nigel was awarded an MBE.

I am not really sure where he find the time to do it all.
