About Us

Capumen are moving up in the world - literally!!
Capumen International Recruitment have moved into a new Head Office on the 30th floor in the beautiful area of Canary Wharf, one of the most impressive and business centric areas in London.

40 Bank Street is an impressive and imposing 32 floor building on Heron Quays with stunning views across London. Capumen International Recruitment have some of the best views in the building, being situated on the 30th floor; we can see the O2 centre and the Thames barrier on one side and the 'City' including the Gherkin and the Shard, as well as the Dartford bridge on the other.

Since the 1500’s the area, we now know as Canary Wharf, has been an essential district within the city of London. In those days, the area was known as the Port of London and was alive with activity and trade. However, by the 1970’s new technology and containerisation meant that the London Docklands, as it was known by then, couldn’t keep up with its competitors and most of the docks had to close.

During the 1980’s development of the area started and by 1987 the Docklands Light Railway as well as London City Airport had both opened for business. The Canary Wharf contract was also signed.
Interest and investment in the area went from strength to strength and in 2013 it now boasts over 80 shops and restaurants, 2 shopping malls and at the last count, a working population of over 100,000 people.
