A trusted service

"I just wanted to drop you a quick email, by way of endorsement to Calco Recruitment Services, and specifically the conversations that I have had with you guys to date. Calco have proved to be a very friendly and approachable organisation – certainly knowledgeable, as portrayed within your social communications, easy to talk to and very positive. I would certainly not hesitate in putting my trust with you guys – look forward to our continued relationship."

"From the outset Calco provided a personal and professional approach, taking the time to understand me as candidate whilst delivering a bespoke opportunity in a clear and coherent manner. Following our initial conversation, Michael kept in regular contact which aided my confidence going into the interview. It is a pleasure to work with Calco and I would not hesitate to recommend them."
Jourdan Webb
"Calco provide a very efficient, thorough and supportive service. They are particularly good at communicating and providing up-to-date information on the recruitment process."
David Ellis
"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 have found Calco to be very efficient, with excellent communications, and very prompt no nonsense payment of the weekly invoice days after submission of my timesheet."
Paul Woodward
"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"

"Firstly I would like say that I am really happy with the position found for me. Great people, good money and lots of potential for me to progress within the company. I was very impressed with Calco as a company, very professional. But what stood the company apart from others was Andrew Snelgrove! What a great individual, not only did he meet all my requirements for the job I wanted, he just made everything so straight forward and easy. Looking for the right job is not an easy thing, but he was supportive, encouraging and just a pleasure to talk to. A big thanks to Andrew great representative, and to Calco for being a well organised and structured company. Many thanks"
Luke J North
"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
"Mark was quick to respond to my application and delivered a number of top job opportunities and always followed up with feedback. He'd be the first on my list to call when looking for architects jobs again in the future."
Nick Hutsteiner
"I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and the team at Calco for the service that you provided in respect of my new role. It was refreshing to have a recruiter who actually took the time to listen to what I wanted. The role that you presented to me, fulfilled all of the criteria that I sought in a new role. I would gladly recommend you and your company to anyone seeking to move positions. Keep up the good work, your approach is exactly the kind of service that both employees and employers seek. The recruitment industry could really learn a lesson from you guys"
Ryan McManus
"Andrew and Oliver provided a bespoke and personal service that I have not experienced with any other agencies to date. They are both friendly and most helpful. I think their knowledge of the sector and contacts tied with their understanding of my experience and aspirations meant that they found a good fit for me in UKPS"
Sam
"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
"I recently worked with Richard Drysdale at Calco Recruitment. It was great working with Richard, he was very supportive, helpful and very professional in his approach. He was always there to help with time sheets, extension of contracts, payments, invoicing and any other support he could offer. Calco was very prompt with payments and the Admin support staff were absolutely fantastic. Should the chance arise again, I will work with Richard and Calco."
Remi Adegbola
"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
"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.
