About JWT London


What is it like to work for JWT London

My Manager
My Manager
JWT London makes it mandatory for all staff to have an annual 360 appraisal. Managers are trained in this important skill and we are seen as a beacon of best practice in this respect. Managers are also trained in the thorny issue of how to deal with poor performance for when a difficult conversation needs to take place.

International Craft Skills is a unique week long residential program that takes place annually at the end of JWT graduate recruits' first year. It consolidates and tests their learning, develops them as individuals and potential leaders and above all connects them and makes them feel truly part of an international community, not an abstract network. In 2012, 34 delegates from London, Lisbon, Milan, New York, Moscow, Dublin, Cairo, Beirut and Tunis gathered in JWT Portugal. The week kicks off with a Myers Briggs workshop, so delegates can then apply their understanding throughout the week in their pitch teams. In parallel, the teams receive daily presentation skills coaching and are encouraged to step out of their comfort zones and take creative risks in their final pitches to clients.

In May 2012, JWT held a spectacular 'Army' themed party for staff, to celebrate winning this new business. 90% of the attendees dressed up in military gear, past and present. The whole agency was decorated in an Army theme by bespoke party planners, complete with inflatable tank on the terrace! There was a barbecue and free drinks until 1am, then the party carried on until very late at a private members club. JWT invited clients to the party and they gave the company fantastic feedback. A photo-booth was placed in Reception and staff took pictures of themselves which were circulated widely to the agency the next day. There was a DJ, dancing and at the end of the evening a trio of 40's style singers arrived.
