A trusted service

"I have worked through Calco for numerous years now and have found their service to be excellent in their professional approach. In my opinion they provided assistance throughout assignment/s with constant communication kept with the individual throughout the assignment process. Financially no issues, the department is very efficient, helpful and easy to talk to in making you aware of any eventualities should this occur. I can not fault Calco and will be be more than happy to recommend to anyone who wants to deal with an established company/ good service / efficient/ friendly team and ensuring that your communication is kept to ensure that things are to your expectations."

"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. "
Mhairi Ramsey
"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 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"

"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.

"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
"From the outset Calco provided a personal and professional approach, taking the time to understand me as candidate whilst delivering a bespoke opportunity in a clear and coherent manner. Following our initial conversation, Michael kept in regular contact which aided my confidence going into the interview. It is a pleasure to work with Calco and I would not hesitate to recommend them."
Jourdan Webb
"I'm very thankful to Calco for giving me a great opportunity and especially to Mohammad Osman who arranged everything to make it happen. He has been very professional and helpful in arranging all the necessary steps to acquire the trust and confidence of the employer who hired me without any doubt. Once again thank you to the management of Calco and Mohammad Osman for the job Well done"
Neil Mangco  |  Kier/BAM Nuttall JV - Hinckley
"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 used Calco for over 15 years and they have become a clear first choice for sourcing a wide range of Commercial Staff. Requirements are quickly understood and Calco’s pre-vetting process, general experience and wide network results in an efficient recruitment experience with long term recruitment of high quality contract and permanent staff. Calcos personal and thorough approach to understanding needs makes them stand out from other providers"
