Jerba Campervans is a family run business based in North Berwick and are looking to employ an Apprentice Finishing Carpenter.

They employ a team of 12 and specialise in converting the VW T6 into a fully finished campervan. Jerba Campervans are an innovative and growing business who take pride in having an inclusive workforce culture where all employees are encouraged to input ideas on improving both our products and the way that we work.

Work Environment:

You will be part of a team of 10 workshop based staff. Located in North Berwick in a 650 sq m heated and insulated building that was constructed in 2014 and is currently being extended.

What might a day in this job look like?

In the early days of the job you will be shadowing experienced carpenters and learning the fundamental building blocks that will form the base for turning you into a skilled finishing carpenter.  You will be given carpentry tasks right from the start of the job and as your skills develop over the 4 year apprenticeship you will eventually move to the complete fitting out of all furniture to brand new VW Transporter T6 vans.
