A trusted service

"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 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
"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

"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"

"I started working with Michael Nordoff in February 2007 at the Olympic Park. I was on assignment there for 4 and a half years, although I carried on working through him after I left the Olympic Park. Through working with Mike, I achieved chartered status from the RICS and Civil Engineering Surveyors in 2009 whilst I was still on assignment at the Olympic Park. It was an opportunity rare to freelancers. You can rely on Mike to get you the correct placement and support you when the clients are being difficult and resolve typical issues that occur on assignments. He has always come up with an assignment shortly before I finish or thereafter, which has resulted in me working with him for 10 years. His policy was and is, once you start an assignment, you must see it through. Finally, he is polite and friendly and I have no reservations working with such a motivating consultant."
Linda Chukwu
"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."
"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
"Working with Laura from Calco has been both a pleasure and a rewarding experience"
Simon Wray
"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
"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
"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
"My name is Marc Orengo and I am from Barcelona. I arrived to London 3 weeks ago. I decided to go to London because I thought I would have more opportunities than in Barcelona. After 1 week of being here and looking for jobs on the internet (which didn’t work out really well) I decided to try to find a Recruitment Agency.
Marc Orengo
"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"
"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."
