He has been Dean of Christ Church, Oxford since October 2014, and was previously Principal of Ripon College Cuddesdon, Oxford.

Percy teaches in the Faculty of Theology and Religion, and is a fellow of the Said Business School, University of Oxford. He is also Professor of Theological Education at King's College London and has served as Professorial Research Fellow at Heythrop College, University of London. He also serves as a visiting professor of the Institute for the Study of Values at the University of Winchester, is a founding fellow of the Center for Theologically Engaged Anthropology at the University of Georgia, and has also served as an adjunct professor at Hartford Seminary, Connecticut. He is an emeritus canon of Salisbury Cathedral, having previously served as an honorary canon. He has also been an honorary canon, serving later as Canon Theologian, at Sheffield Cathedral. He became a fellow of King's College London in 2018.

Percy's theological outlook is rooted in his long-standing commitment to middle-way Anglicanism. His writings fall into three distinct-but-related groups: ecclesiology; contemporary Christianity, religious movements and sociological trends; and anthropological interpretations of denominations and congregations; and spiritual devotional writings. He has also written extensively about theological education, as well as contextual, pastoral and practical theology.

In 2013, ''The Times Literary Supplement'' praised Percy for his work towards unity within the Anglican Communion and Church of England, describing him as displaying a "peaceable, polite and restrained" approach whilst "making peace between competing communities of conviction."
