"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"

"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"

Mark Downey understood our business needs exactly and supplied us with a fantastic candidate who we ended up employing on a permanent basis.

"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"
