A trusted service

"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 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 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."
"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
"I have found Calco to be very efficient, with excellent communications, and very prompt no nonsense payment of the weekly invoice days after submission of my timesheet."
Paul Woodward
"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 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
"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
