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!
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.
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!
Russel is our newest apprentice in the Electrical department, quickly learning the ropes to take over the wiring from our existing electrician.
In his spare time Russel enjoys playing and watching football.
Andy is with us just one or two days a week to look after stock and the rentals. Chances are if you’re going away in one of our vans – Andy will show you round!
He is definitely keen to get a van for himself sometime soon as well!
Sheena Is our part time Seamstress at Jerba. Our vans all have unique curtains with a huge selection, Sheena puts it all together in the end.
While not making curtains Sheena is working on new ideas from seat covers to shower tents!

After your VW T6/ T6.1 has been prepped by the conversion specialists it is then moved onto the finishing carpenters. This is where all the furniture is made and then fitted into the van by our experienced master craftsmen. Our finishing carpenters pride themselves on their excellent craftsmanship and their high quality finish.
Nathan recently completed his wood machinist apprentice and is now a fully qualified and celebrated finishing carpenter here at Jerba. Nathan is a fast learner not only improving his furniture making skills but also learning all of the skills of a conversion fitter. In his time here Nathan has made a big difference on our production levels.

Ian has now succumbed to the campervan lifestyle with him now owning his own VW campervan.
Calum is our latest carpentry apprentice. He’s always had a passion for VW’s, and it’s no wonder when his father is our operations director Alan.
