A KEIGHLEY company has taken on two new employees – including its first-ever trainee – as it looks to expand its product range.

Online VW campervan parts retailer Kiravans has recruited Samantha Ettenfield as purchasing controller and Skye Taylor as an e-commerce customer services apprentice.

Samantha, 32, from Steeton, will be responsible for ensuring stock levels are maintained and helping to source new products.

Seventeen-year-old Skye – who lives in Keighley and is a former pupil of the town’s Beckfoot Oakbank School – will split her time over the next 12 months between the Kiravans base at Acre Park and Shipley College, where she will study on day release.

Company director Rob McCandless said: “We have built an enviable reputation for our products as well as our customer services, and Samantha and Skye will help ensure we stay as the first stop for camper van conversion parts.”
