"I worked with Sam to find a quantity surveyor for a project I was managing. 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."
Kim Wells
"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
"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
"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 found Nazir very professional in his approach to me regarding the position with L&Q, but in the same token very honest and easy to discuss and talk to about any issues that I may of had regarding the vacant position, he all so made a very good job of rearranging my CV into the current acceptable format of which I am most grateful, he was always available if I had any queries and if in a meeting always returned my calls, he also provided me with excellent information and tips of how to conduct myself in the interview, I would not hesitate to highly recommend Nazir and Calco to any of my colleagues who are currently looking for a new position"

"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
"I recently worked with Richard Drysdale at Calco Recruitment. It was great working with Richard, he was very supportive, helpful and very professional in his approach. He was always there to help with time sheets, extension of contracts, payments, invoicing and any other support he could offer. Calco was very prompt with payments and the Admin support staff were absolutely fantastic. Should the chance arise again, I will work with Richard and Calco."
Remi Adegbola
"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
"Working with Laura from Calco has been both a pleasure and a rewarding experience"

"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."

"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"
