1 min read

A market leading minibus manufacturer is undertaking a recruitment drive to strengthen its sales and marketing prowess. 

CVM World, based in Knypersley, near Stoke-on-Trent, is creating up to 10 new jobs.  

The roles include Marketing Manager, Business Development Manager, Coachbuilder, Marketing Executive, SEO Specialist, Content Manager and Apprentice Production Technicians. It comes as the company seeks to grow its workforce of more than 60 as demand for its products increases. 

Since 2007, CVM World has been converting and manufacturing minibuses from its North Staffordshire factory supplying up to 500 vehicles a year.  

Recently, they have diversified into welfare vans (to support site workers and emergency services), campervans and Ford Ranger Extremes.  

The company is a key supplier to schools, colleges and academies, as well as charities, construction and emergency Services sectors.  

CVM estimates that more than 3,000 of its vehicles are currently on the road serving Schools, Charities, Nursing Homes, Private Hire, Community Transport and Local Authorities.  

Owner Paul Connolly said: “We have ambitious growth plans for the company and have developed a great product range.  

“We partner with Stellantis Group to manufacture Peugeot, Vauxhall, Fiat and Citroen vehicles.  

“And also directly with Ford. So now it’s time we started to shout about it, hence our investment in sales and marketing.” 

Demand for minibuses and welfare vans is on the rise as transportation for vulnerable and disabled people increases. 

In addition, welfare vans provide a mobile solution to provide shelter, cooking facilities, seating space and a lavatory for site workers.
