"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
"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
"Mark Excellent professional service. Well done!"
John Boulter
"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 effcient work. Best wishes"
"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."
"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 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
"I have found Calcos’ approach to recruitment very refreshing as they have understood our need in a very professional and timely manner. In particular I have found Andy Cook to be very engaging and a dynamic individual who listens and responds very well. Andy has the right mix of candidate insight coupled with his enthusiasm and character - it has been a pleasure working with him. Working in the Marketing department is Charlotte Barrington who has always been extremely helpful, efficient and informative providing updates. Charlotte has a fantastic personality and a real flair for the job that she obviously really enjoys and is extremely good at. I would have no hesitation to recommending Calco to my colleagues and contacts within the Construction Industry."
Steve Miles  |  R&W Civil Engineering - Main
"I found Samantha Dodson to be thorough, attentive and pro-active during my recent search for employment; the process was straight-forward and honest and I would certainly recommend Samantha to others."
Rob Keeley
"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 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
"Calco provide a VERY GOOD service. Smooth, efficient and quick turnaround. All consultants communicate well, understand clients need and requirements. All job roles provided have always been the right job for me. Calco will always be my first call when looking for a new job."
Abdullah Elgayar  |  Kier Highways Ltd - London
"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 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
"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."
