Biography for Jackie Griffiths

Jackie began her freelance interpreting career in 1987:

She has since worked as an interpreter for London borough council and a large national charity, working her way up to senior interpreter where she supervised junior colleagues who are now prominent and respected members of our profession.

She was a lecturer at the University of Bristol during 2003 - 2005 and again in 2008 - 2009, is an ASLI trained mentor, A1 assessor and trainer. Jackie enjoys attending training and is an active member of ASLI, including being National Chair from 2005 - 2007. She believes that to support students and colleagues through training and assessmment is a reward in itself and often says that she will share her experiences and in return asks them to gift their skills to another colleague, thus we become a supportive profession. Jackie is proud to call herself a community interpreter but also enjoys the variety of interpreting work in more specialist domains.
