The retained account is UK only and covers press office and integrated campaigns. Incumbent agency Lansons did not repitch for the work.
uSwitch started talking to agencies back in the spring. The company provides price comparisons of gas and electricity suppliers, digital TV providers, home telephone providers, broadband internet and mobile phone packages.

Charlotte Nunes, head of PR at, said she would partner with 3 Monkeys "on creative campaigns that build on our consumer champion brand values and encourage more people to reduce their energy bills".

Angie Moxham, 'chief monkey' of 3 Monkeys, who led the pitch, added: " has carved out a credible position in a highly competitive market as the brand that lobbies for consumers' rights as well as offering easy access to better deals. We are very impressed with its track record and ambitions and are looking forward to partnering with it to drive the business and brand forward."

uSwitch was founded in 2000 and was recently acquired by Zoopla Property Group. The company appointed Capella PR last year for its money and insurance business and works with Rhizome PR for technology.
