Careers

Looks like you’re interested in joining the JK Team? We’d love to have you onboard!

Just Kampers is one of the leading producers and suppliers of parts and accessories for a huge range of VWs, from the classic air-cooled Beetle to the brand new VW T6.1 van.

There’s a team of more than 50 of us here at JK HQ in Odiham, Hampshire, working hard to make sure that we can get our customers the right products at the right prices, and get them delivered quickly. Whether you’re looking to join the team in our fast-paced warehouse, or you’ve got your eye on a role in our marketing, purchasing, sales or customer service teams, you’ll find the roles laid out below.

Working here

We’re based in a converted WWII aircraft hangar in Odiham, Hampshire – just down a winding country lane from RAF Odiham. In fact, you’ll often see Chinooks flying over while having lunch outside in the summer!

Because it’s fairly out of the way, you’ll need to be able to drive to work at JK HQ, since we’re a fair way from public transport. Some of us do cycle into work, but there are a lot of narrow country roads around here and no showers on site, so it’s not always the best option!
