A trusted service

"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. "

"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 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."
"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
"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
"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

"Even though the construction industry has gone through a couple of recessions in my time at Calco, Calco have kept me working throughout the last 7 years. I have never missed a weeks wages in my time at Calco and my career has progressed from site work to management under their guidance."
"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
"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 met Sam while finding my current position, she was polite and nice to deal with while always being professional. She organised and set up the interviews and was very informative at all times, letting me know of any changes and keeping me up to date throughout the process."
John Baldock
"I would like to take this opportunity to thank Robbie Massey for his support and great work in finding me a new job. I have dealt with many agencies but none of them have given me such kind attention and efficient work. Best wishes"
"Calco were instrumental in helping me pursue a career change, they successfully matched me with an employer who happened to be one of the market leaders in their industry. The opportunities provided by this placement have been vast and I am very grateful to Mike and the rest of the team at Calco for their support along the way. I have now been with Calco for over three years and have gotten to know the wider team through their many social events. I could easily consider Calco as family, and if they were my family, then Jayne would certainly be my big sister. Jayne has always looked out for me, she checks up on me regularly and always makes sure I get paid on time… even when I’ve missed a deadline! Calco provide a great service with personal touch which is sincere, I couldn’t recommend them more highly."

"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"
