A trusted service

"Calco provided me with a professional service which boosted my career, from dealing with applications submitted to prospective clients to landing the contract. I recommend Calco to anyone confidently based on my experience."
Dominic Hewlett
“I would like to thank Calco for the service that they have provided to myself and my new company. They whole process from first contact to arranging telephone interview, formal interview and negotiation on employment package was seamless and professional. We are both very pleased with the correspondence from Ollie who seemed to always go the extra mile to provide a personal touch to everything that he did. We both would be more than happy to use the service again”
Martin Williams
"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."
"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
"Andy was professional and listened to my personal needs, he sourced a company which fitted my brief perfectly. The communication from the start to finish of the process was first class. The attention to detail could not be faulted. I recommend anybody looking for a profession role to consider Calco to all their friends and colleagues."
Kin Yau
"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 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
"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
"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."
"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 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"
Danilo Veiga
"I just wanted to say thanks to Andrew Snelgrove for posting me in this company. My managers are ace the company is brilliant I couldn’t be happier"
Tom Connelly
"I started at L&Q today and had a good day. I would like to thank Nazir and Jordi for making it so efficient. Well done"
Peter McKue
"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 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."
