A trusted service

"Calco provide a VERY GOOD service. Smooth, efficient and quick turnaround. All consultants communicate well, understand clients need and requirements. All job roles provided have always been the right job for me. Calco will always be my first call when looking for a new job."
Abdullah Elgayar  |  Kier Highways Ltd - London
"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."

"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 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 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
"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."
Nick Maree  |  Bachy Soletanche Limited - Main
"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
"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
"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"
Clive
"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
"Mark Excellent professional service. Well done!"
John Boulter
"Calco provide a very efficient, thorough and supportive service. They are particularly good at communicating and providing up-to-date information on the recruitment process."
David Ellis
"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
"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"
