"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"

"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"

"Following your recent recruitment drives for Electrical & Mechanical vacancies on my behalf. It is with pleasure that I write to confirm your tenacity in identifying and placing quality candidates that are an asset to my team. Over the past 2 years, we have worked together to find competent Supervisors and Project Engineers for the water and waste water mechanical & electrical services contract we have with Southern Water. You have succeeded where others have failed by continuously keeping an experienced eye on promising staff opportunities and maintaining the right level of communication with myself to ensure progress is made. Thanks goes to you and your team for the continued support it is appreciated in a tough market with many challenges."
Ben Joy
"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
"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
"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."
"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 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"
Sarah-Jayne Flowers
"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 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 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
"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 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."
