Why drive for Green Tomato Cars?

When it comes to PCO driver opportunities, London is something of a saturated market. However, we’re confident that you’ll find Green Tomato Cars a cut above the competition, with a range of unique benefits and features that set us apart from the chasing pack. Here are a handful of reasons why you should consider driving for us:

Bespoke software. Our auto-allocation system and driver app have both been developed in-house to meet the specific needs of our drivers, meaning you’ll have access to support, instant messaging and easy-to-use route finders at the touch of a button. The wonders of modern technology are at your fingertips.

  • Enhanced earnings. While our dispatch technology lines you up for your next trip while you’re Passenger on Board with the current fare, our Telematics software gives you tips on how to optimise fuel efficiency.
  • Quality passengers. Over the years, we have cultivated a loyal customer base who keep coming back to us because of our environmental values, the high quality of our vehicles and our outstanding customer service. The flipside of this is that our passengers are respectful and professional customers, caring about their fellow human beings as well as the environment.
  • Personalised support services. We pride ourselves on offering a higher level of support than other PCO licensed operators. As well as in-car support from our app, you’ll also have a dedicated manager to provide assistance whenever you need it and however you like it, whether that’s via phone, email or face-to-face. We’re here to help.
  • Improving air quality. Not only are our low- and zero-emissions vehicles kind to Mother Nature, but we also pay to double offset the emissions we can’t avoid, meaning that all of our journeys are actually carbon negative.

Choose how you drive

Green Tomato Cars pride ourselves on offering our drivers maximum flexibility in their choice of PCO jobs, from becoming a fully-fledged employee of the company, to earning as an independent company car driver, to driving your own car under our umbrella. Whichever way you prefer to work things, we can accommodate:

Employee / PAYE drivers

  • With new full-time PCO drivers required, we can offer an attractive salary with an annual PAYE of £30,000-£40,000 OTE (different earnings for different shift patterns)
  • We pride ourselves on taking good care of our employees, which is why you’ll also receive an impressive benefits package, including a pension scheme, childcare vouchers, eye care coverage, and our employee assistance programme
  • We understand that everyone needs some time away from the job – which is why you’ll receive 28 days of paid leave (including bank holidays)
  • There’s no need to worry about costly PCO rentals or purchases. With us, you’ll receive a zero-emissions company car as standard
  • We will even pay for you to install an EV Charging Point at your home

Company car drivers – Rental

  • PCO car hire in London can be an expensive proposition, but we’ll provide you with one of our cars at competitive rental rates, a fixed job mileage rate, rent rebate scheme with no deposit necessary.  Drivers will also have the option to sign up to a rent free car deal based on earning a percentage of the overall fare for each trip, and no weekly costs for the car
  • We will cover the daily costs of the new congestion charge implemented by TFL (£15.00/day)  as well as costs for the English Language Test
  • You can build up rent-free weeks to reduce your rental fees or, for our most dedicated drivers, remove the charges altogether
  • Our superb driver payment model rewards our employees not only for the quantity of fares they undertake, but the quality of the service they provide and how well they drive – better drivers pay less insurance
  • For those drivers who want to fit in hours around a pre-existing busy schedule, we offer complete flexibility. Choose only the days and times which work for you
  • Our driver support system is on hand around the clock to give you the help you need to do your job to the best of your ability

Owner drivers

  • Use your own vehicle and get paid an agreed mileage rate (e.g. £14.25 – £21.00 peak minimum for first 5 miles) and extras, such as Congestion Charge contribution (£2.25/job)
  • Flexibility is the name of the game; drive your own car only on the days and at the times which work best for you
  • Benefit from a mixture of card, cash and company account jobs to keep yourself busy through your desired shift pattern
  • Whether or not you’re driving one of our cars, that doesn’t mean you can’t benefit from our dedicated driver support system. We’re always on hand to help you in any way we can
  • We also work with LEVC Zero-Emission Taxi drivers on our circuit
  • Easy-to-hit weekly bonuses based on completed jobs
  • Looking to rent or own a PCO-licenced car? Contact us to hear about our Rental and Rent to Own options, or speak with our partner, Splend, who can also help you get your career into gear. Their electric PCO cars come with dedicated support and training so you can be a more profitable, safer, fulfilled driver.
