"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."
"Andrew is by far the best recruitment consultant that I have been in contact with during my search for a role in London. He was honest with me at all times and helped me prepare for my interviews and kept great communication with me at all times. I couldn't recommend him highly enough!"
Claire Morrison
"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 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
"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."

"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"
