A trusted service

"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"
Rob Chapman
"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 would like to thank Andrew, not just for the excellent opportunity to work for UKPS, moreover, for being an utterly outstanding person. Thanks for all the phone calls and especially the card. I am enjoying working at UKPS and hope we can meet sometime soon to have some drink. Hope great success for you. Kind, regards"

"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
"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"
Clive
"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 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."
Wendy Kirckpatrick
"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
"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
"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
"I just wanted to drop you a quick email, by way of endorsement to Calco Recruitment Services, and specifically the conversations that I have had with you guys to date. Calco have proved to be a very friendly and approachable organisation – certainly knowledgeable, as portrayed within your social communications, easy to talk to and very positive. I would certainly not hesitate in putting my trust with you guys – look forward to our continued relationship."

"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"
Konstantinos Maraslidis
"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."
