Who is Capax?

At Capax, we place great emphasis on giving our employees the responsibility and opportunity to work with customers at different levels. The majority of our consultants work directly with top executives in large organisations. In order to succeed in this, we work with monthly knowledge sharing. Both through internal and external presenters, our consultants gain greater insight into the latest trends in the market, and continuous training in exciting specialties. This keeps our consultants up to date with knowledge and good understanding of the different fields.

Capax is located at Orient Plads 1, just a stone’s throw from the Metro station. With offices, as well as a balcony right next to the water, we offer our employees both coffee and lunch, with a beautiful view.

Our history


Capax is established in collaboration between the Danish Engineering Society, IDA’s, daughter company, Teknologiens Mediehus, and Christina Just. The move responds to growing market demand for IT specialists, engineers, and both managers and leaders with a STEM background. High demand for these profiles and the close collaboration with IDA, helped us build out a position as Denmark’s leading specialist search and recruitment company.


Capax becomes the largest engineering search company in Denmark. 
As a fast growing company, Capax receives the esteemed Gazelle price from Børsen for the second consecutive year.

Capax adds Henrik Winther, Executive Vice President for COWI Denmark, to its board, which boosts its profile and adds extra professional gravitas and ability.


Capax becomes an independent consultancy company after a management buy-out. The move reflects a desire to pursue business opportunities within a broader range of specialist areas. At the same time, Emil Plaugmann joins the partner team. Emil has been a part of Capax since 2010 and has been instrumental in Capax’ growth.  

Our goals


At Capax, we have a dedicated goal to become as sustainable as possible. We find great inspiration in partners such as Novo Nordisk and Energinet, who are both working towards energy optimisation and waste reduction.


We have signed The Gender Diversity Pledge, committing ourselves to actively work towards more gender balance in business, especially in the executive corridors and on boards.

Our culture & values

We have a ”can do” mentality. Our ambition is to solve all assignments and projects optimally, no matter their degree of difficulty. It is an ambition we are proud to pursue and achieve.

Capax has a well-documented track record of successfully finding and matching the optimal candidates to complex, technical job positions.

Our success is partly due to viewing every assignment as an honest collaboration where we add our expertise and skills to yours. An early step in any project or assignment is a clear and objective analysis using our competencies and industry knowledge to evaluate what can – and what cannot – be achieved.

It is important that we both understand and agree on the task at hand, the content of the position you are looking to fill, the profiles we are looking for, and what it is possible to achieve before we start working on a project.

We believe in openness, honesty, and meeting you where you are – with a clear eye on your goals and ambitions. We function as your collaborator and partner and are proud of our long-lasting and solid customer relations. We go that extra step to ensure that you are satisfied and that we reach your goal with any recruitment assignment.

It is important for us that we are the right match for you.

Our consultants

Highly specialised recruitment consultants

Our consultants are highly specialised in the headhunting of IT specialists, engineers, and both managers and leaders with a STEM background. We also solve consultancy projects in connection with recruitment processes, outplacements, and freelance hires.

All consultants have a minimum of a candidates degree and are among the best of their respective years. As the only company in the Danish recruitment industry, we offer a graduate programme where our new employees are introduced to and trained in using all relevant recruitment tools and receive full training in the role of recruitment consultants.

This helps us ensure that all employees have an in-depth understanding of their industry and role, the industries they recruit for, and have received the full training needed to find and recruit highly sought-after profiles.
