"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."

"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."

She was very informative throughout the process and presented me with a number of CVs for me to consider, she arranged the interviews and managed the process throughout until the surveyor joined us. I would highly recommend her and Calco as a company."

"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.

"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"
