Work for us

This is a great opportunity for the right person to get involved with a dynamic, high-profile organisation, to help us build on and consolidate our successes, to be an ambassador for our values and our campaigns and to work with a team that punches far above its weight, delivering real impact and lasting change and ending the brutal exploitation of workers by the like of uber and licensing regulator such as TfL.

We are self funded as volunteers and union dues are currently now mostly reserved to pay for outside legal representation for members when needed.

All of our Executive Committee are or have recently been private hire drivers or couriers in precarious employment. Our membership reflects the profile of our industry. In London, for instance, 94% of licensed private hire drivers are BAME and 71% are from the most deprived London communities. (according to TfL)
