About the employer

At Ecowagon, we create hand-crafted, stylish and award winning campervans, from Volkswagen vans. We can supply brand new fully converted campers, or we can help transform a customer's van with one of our camper interiors. Our customer base is very widespread, so we have vans all over the country from Dundee, right down to Cornwall, on the Channel Islands, the Falklands, Ireland and even one in the French Alps! Last year we had a feature on Million Pound Motorhomes and one on Today at the Motorhome Show. We've had countless features in various campervan magazines and we took part in Top Gear's feature on the IDBuzz - the electric VW van. What Motorhome journalist Peter Vaughn has featured our vans in hisr reviews - these can be found on YouTube and were hugely popular. As a busy growing business, this is a great opportunity for an individual to learn a new skill and become part of our fantastic team.
