About Jagex Games Studio


What is it like to work for Jagex Games Studio

My Manager
My Manager
Every manager that joins Jagex goes through a session on setting objectives and ensuring they are Specific, Measurable, Agreed, Realistic and Timed. Managers ensure that through the PDR each employee has complete clarity on what is expected of them and they review their performance against their objectives on a monthly basis. In addition to the annual bonus, managers reward staff through their flash bonus system, effectively a cash bonus can be awarded to anyone at any time by their manager from a pot of funds put aside by the company to the value of 2% of all salaries.
My Team
My Team
This year the company were honoured to receive the Queens Award for Enterprise. Established in 1965 they are the highest official UK awards for British businesses. The awards are made annually by HM The Queen, and are only given for the highest levels of excellence demonstrated in each category, their category being Innovation. They were presented the award by a representative of the crown in September and decided to celebrate in quintessential British style with fish & chips, afternoon tea and a bottle of English wine for everyone to enjoy! It was a great opportunity to celebrate what is a great achievement for the company and take some time out of the working day for everyone to celebrate. There was a fantastic sense of achievement around the office and the traditional food and drink made it a very enjoyable and special day for the team.
