We believe that Performance Communications is a great place to work. But don’t just take our word for it.
In a recent employee survey*, 100% of people said they would recommend Performance to a friend. 96% said Performance is a fun place to work and 92% said they enjoyed their job.
We think we’re different. We genuinely believe in ensuring our employees have a work / life balance. Both offices finish early at the end of the week and we also provide social budgets to give teams an opportunity to unwind at the end of the day. We close over Christmas so we can all take time away from the office.
We also offer a wide range of perks and benefits including fresh fruit, massages and regular training for everyone. Our holiday allowance increases the longer you’ve been here and people also have the opportunity to buy more holiday.
We’re always keen to hear from great people with a passion for sports, technology and automotive. So if you’ve been thinking about a career change or just fancy a chat, then drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.

We have an exciting new role for an account manager or senior account manager to join our award-winning creative comms agency. Working on globally renowned automotive and motorcycle brands, we are looking for a self-starter with an interest in cars and/or bikes. You should be a great writer for both traditional and social channels taking dull data and painting pictures with it. You’re comfortable in front of clients and can translate those conversations into projects that deliver great results. Experience managing a team would be great from both a people development perspective, but also from leaning on your team to deliver bigger complex projects. Any experience creating simple social content from graphics to videos would be a massive plus. In return, you’ll get to work on some incredible brands, at one of the worlds leading sports, automotive and technology comms agencies alongside some great people (Ok, we would say that!). Located in Kingston-Upon-Thames, this job would be split between office (2-3 days a week) and home – with occasional travel across the UK and abroad possible. The salary is dependent on experience.
