Company Update By Josanne Griffin-Mason, 27th January 2015

At the end of last year, we opened our brand new digital marketing office in Canary Wharf.

Now, we sit amongst the suits and bankers in London’s financial hub, and we couldn’t be happier. These are the eight things we love most about working in Canary Wharf.

‘Oh, did I mention that I work in Canary Wharf?’

Falafel

The mega falafel salads from Organic Chickpeas make lunchtime delicious. Josanne, Brand Journalist

Sammy

You have to pinch yourself when you stumble upon Sammy the Seal playing with his plastic pipe at South Quay. You’re not a true E14-er until you’ve met him! Steve, Software Developer

The view of the O2 across the Thames is truly Instagram-worthy (it’s the reason we get to work in time for sunrise!). Megan, Marketing Manager

At night, it feels like you’re a tiny character in a cartoon as the film noir-esque buildings tower above you, beaming out rays of light from the trading room floors. Hélène, Graphic Designer
