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 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.
Gareth is the newest member of the team here at Jerba. 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 will be working along side supervisor Vince to learn the ropes and settle in to a his new role here at Jerba.
John has been with us for 12 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.

Rob is the latest member of the Jerba family. He’s 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!

After your VW T6 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 joined us as an apprentice and is doing the same wood machinist apprenticeship as David has done. 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 short time here Nathan has made a big difference on our production levels.
Ian has always worked with wood having previously been a furniture maker he is now a master craftsman here at Jerba. Ian’s love of performing arts and creativity can be seen in his innovative designs, and also keeps the workshop laughing. 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 manager Alan. Calum likes anything with an engine and is often found out on the trails competing all over the country on his motorbike. Keep a lookout on our social media for Calums DIY wood projects, you’ll be impressed!
