"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."

"Thank you for contacting me with the confirmation to start the new position next Monday as a Clerk of Works with London and Quadrant. This is one of my best experiences of being head hunted by a Consulting Agency. My main contact was Nazir Idris who facilitated the process from arranging the Job Interview, sending me the contract documents for signing and being in contact with me in a very professional manner throughout the entire process which was very good. This is a Agency I would recommend. Regards Clive"

"I was sent Marks details from an old collegue knowing I was looking for work. After sending my C.V Mark contacted me with a list of several companies with suitable openings and we discussed my preferred companies in some detail. The very next day he had arranged an interview and sent through all the company information. Mark promptly followed up the interview to arrange a second stage meeting. I was kept well informed at all stages of the process and was delighted to be offered the first position which Mark had identified. It all seemed a little to easy, but I am sure this was due to Marks efforts to find a company that suited both my career ambitions and personality, therefore I would highly commend Mark upon his considerate, personal approach to recruitment which I have found lacking in many similar companies."
Wendy Kirckpatrick
"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
"My experience with Mark Downey made me get back trust in the recruitment agencies. His ability to recognize candidates’ potentials are real benefit for the employers. The support I got from Mark during the process helped me understand deeply the job requirements. Communication with him went smoothly and easy. He was focused, straightforward and very efficient. I highly recommend Mark as a recruitment consultant."
Alexa Cvetanka Girova
"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."

"Following your recent recruitment drives for Electrical & Mechanical vacancies on my behalf. It is with pleasure that I write to confirm your tenacity in identifying and placing quality candidates that are an asset to my team. Over the past 2 years, we have worked together to find competent Supervisors and Project Engineers for the water and waste water mechanical & electrical services contract we have with Southern Water. You have succeeded where others have failed by continuously keeping an experienced eye on promising staff opportunities and maintaining the right level of communication with myself to ensure progress is made. Thanks goes to you and your team for the continued support it is appreciated in a tough market with many challenges."
Ben Joy
"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 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 am extremely grateful to Oliver and Mike from Calco, who helped me secure a great job in Rail. I am very pleased with their services. They went above and beyond to get me this role. They were very efficient. At every point they communicated with me, before and after the interview. Even after I secured the role, they continued to communicate with me. It was a very quick and smooth recruitment process. I would recommend Calco to all candidates currently looking for work, as they have really exceeded my expectations. Calco are an astounding and reliable company. Their business integrity is second to none! To be honest with you I am not sure what needs to be improved. From the beginning until date, you have been nothing but exceptional. I can't complain"
Sarah-Jayne Flowers
"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 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."

"Having used Calco to source an architectural technologist for our business on a long term contract, I found their service to be extremely efficient and professional. Mark Downey understood our business needs exactly and supplied us with a fantastic candidate who we ended up employing on a permanent basis. I would have no hesitation in recommending Calco for their excellent service and will definitely use them again in the future for any other recruitment needs our practice may have. "
Mhairi Ramsey
"I'm very thankful to Calco for giving me a great opportunity and especially to Mohammad Osman who arranged everything to make it happen. He has been very professional and helpful in arranging all the necessary steps to acquire the trust and confidence of the employer who hired me without any doubt. Once again thank you to the management of Calco and Mohammad Osman for the job Well done"
Neil Mangco  |  Kier/BAM Nuttall JV - Hinckley
"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."
