As a 100% Employee Owned company we pride ourselves in having a team of dedicated and passionate individuals who work together to build every campervan as if it’s their very own.
Our employees are fully involved in all parts of the business and they all partake in working groups that meet regularly to look at product and systems improvements, new innovations and improving the workplace environment.
Every member of team is as valued cog in a bigger process and aim to ensure that they produce the best product with the best customer service from the best working conditions.
All our employees have a different story to tell – but one thing that many have in common is their own Jerba camper that they’ve built after hours!!!
Your van’s first stop will be with Vince our schedule supervisor. Vince’s previous experience in management for large food and drink brands has given him the patience to teach our apprentice conversion fitters. This ensures that Jerba Campervans’ can continue to grow and still maintain its high level of quality. We predict that Vince will be the next Jerba employee with a campervan. 2022 update, we predicted right!
Gareth is Vince’s right hand man in the Schedule area. Having spent 9 years working as a chef he decided it was time to try something new and set his course for Jerba Campervans. Gareth is a Conversion Specialist and is constantly learning new skills in auto electrics and conversion fitting here at Jerba.
John has been with us for 16 years starting shortly after the business was started in 2006. His indisputable knowledge and skill coupled with his approachable nature makes him an excellent conversion specialist. John oversees all that goes into the underside of your new van to ensure that all of our Jerba campervans are of the highest quality and safety.
Rob is currently serving his 4 year auto electrician apprenticeship here and looks to have a long career with Jerba. He’s also a budding photographer and is even keen to get in front of the camera, Rob might even feature on our youtube channel one day!
Jake is our latest schedule apprentice. He’s always had a passion for cars, and he’s excited to learn the skills he’ll need for working on his own car one day. Jake likes mountain biking at the weekends and is working towards getting his own motorbike so he can avoid the occasional 1 hour cycle home when there’s no one available to give him a lift!

Nathan recently completed his wood machinist apprentice and is now a fully qualified and celebrated finishing carpenter here at Jerba.
