The aim of the research was to investigate the relationship between two positive psychology constructs (namely sense of coherence and self-efficacy) and job performance in a group of 99 recruitment consultants. The study was conducted in the context of the recruitment industry, which is characterised by high levels of competition and stress as a result of sociopolitical and economic factors. No relationships were found overall between sense of coherence, self-efficacy and job performance. However, the comprehensibility component of sense of coherence correlated statistically significantly with overall job performance and two of its dimensions, namely customer service and productivity. Stepwise regression analyses indicated that comprehensibility contributed significantly to variance in total job performance scores, and the addition of meaningfulness to the model further increased variance in total job performance.
