A trusted service

"Calco is a professional organisation with the interest of its clients at the core of its services. I have never had any cause for concern or raised any issues with Calco ever since I signed up with the organisation a few years ago. I would definitely recommend Calco."
Akin Akinrujomu
"Can I just add, I am now coming up to my sixth month of employment with Calco, and I would just like to say a big thank you to all staff. The service has been impeccable! After 23 years of being a contractor, working with many agencies, it's not often you can rely on payments so efficient."
Ian Johnson
"Thanks for giving me the opportunity to do this, my experience with Calco has been Splendid and a very good one particularly, I really do appreciate your professionalism most especially you Groundwork for being available and ready to assist and attend to me anytime I called, from the your Receptionist/Secretary who answer the phone with very good manner and efficiency anytime I've had to call which aren't many as you are always ready to call me before I even think of calling, I've enjoyed the short time I've come to know Calco and would definitely wish them to continue representing me and would work again with Calco in future long may our relationship last. "
Abimbola Akinyugha
"I wish to take this opportunity to express my thanks and sincere appreciation for the sterling work Calco has undertaken on my behalf – having stood by me for many years through challenging times – in my career progression efforts. In particular I extend my appreciation and profound gratitude to our colleague at Calco, Mr. Andrew Snelgrove, whom I have known personally for nearly 10 years – and whose invaluable moral support, reassurance and efforts on my behalf, culminated in securing for myself a fantastic opportunity in my career as an electrical designer within the electrical discipline of power distribution utilities with Power On Connections. After all my previous years as an engineer with work experience both locally and abroad my engagement as Electrical Designer with Power On Connections has, for me, become the golden watershed moment in my career development and progression. In my position, we work together as a conscientious and astute team of engineers with high standard
"Working with Laura from Calco has been both a pleasure and a rewarding experience"
Simon Wray
"I worked with Sam to find a quantity surveyor for a project I was managing. She was very informative throughout the process and presented me with a number of CVs for me to consider, she arranged the interviews and managed the process throughout until the surveyor joined us. I would highly recommend her and Calco as a company."
Kim Wells
"I have been employed through Calco Services Limited on a number of projects and have always found their staff friendly to deal with. Payment is always prompt and the notification process for payments is fantastic, a testament to Jayne Thain’s professional approach to account management. It is no coincidence that Calco is celebrating 30 years in the industry with such good service. Cheers"
Steve Coltman  |  Canary Wharf Limited - Main
"I ought to admit that this must have probably been the most effective conversation I have ever had with a recruiter. Andrew has been willing to describe the available opportunities in detail, match my CV with proper jobs and provide me with alternatives which would be more suitable to my competences and skills. In addition, he was able to understand my preferences and put them into the equation. I look forward to being successful in one of the jobs he has proposed. Kind regards, Konstantinos"
Konstantinos Maraslidis
"I found Samantha Dodson to be thorough, attentive and pro-active during my recent search for employment; the process was straight-forward and honest and I would certainly recommend Samantha to others."
Rob Keeley
"I started working with Michael Nordoff in February 2007 at the Olympic Park. I was on assignment there for 4 and a half years, although I carried on working through him after I left the Olympic Park. Through working with Mike, I achieved chartered status from the RICS and Civil Engineering Surveyors in 2009 whilst I was still on assignment at the Olympic Park. It was an opportunity rare to freelancers. You can rely on Mike to get you the correct placement and support you when the clients are being difficult and resolve typical issues that occur on assignments. He has always come up with an assignment shortly before I finish or thereafter, which has resulted in me working with him for 10 years. His policy was and is, once you start an assignment, you must see it through. Finally, he is polite and friendly and I have no reservations working with such a motivating consultant."
Linda Chukwu
“I would like to thank Calco for the service that they have provided to myself and my new company. They whole process from first contact to arranging telephone interview, formal interview and negotiation on employment package was seamless and professional. We are both very pleased with the correspondence from Ollie who seemed to always go the extra mile to provide a personal touch to everything that he did. We both would be more than happy to use the service again”
Martin Williams
"I just wanted to say thanks to Andrew Snelgrove for posting me in this company. My managers are ace the company is brilliant I couldn’t be happier"
Tom Connelly
"I have been with Calco Services Ltd for the past 7 years and in that time I have worked with the most amazing set of progressive people. My Manager and colleagues are so supportive and co-operative. My typical work day is quite hectic - dealing with members of the public, calculation checks in the office and site visits not to talk of sometimes attending to dangerous structures. I find it all very interesting and at the same time challenging, my supportive team make it worth my while."
"Calco provide me with an efficient professional service, clearly understanding my requirements and ensuring all candidate presented met with the specification brief. One of the candidates was successful in interview and has fitted in well with the team and I’m very satisfied with the candidate we have chosen. I would not hesitate in using Richard again"
Steve Rowland
"Hi Gemma, I found working with your good self and Calco very easy going and relaxed. I am very pleased with the position you and Calco found me. Looking forward to Monday morning starting a very interesting project. Many thanks for the employment. Very Best Regards" Mr Ian Carr
