Do you want to be a key player in the communication and management of projects on the cutting edge of IT and business? Do you want to focus on online security? Or do you want to code? The possibilities are endless in these directions, so we're confident we can find a role that fits you perfectly. Curious about the different possibilities? Check directions in IT above.


  • During the training period we will get to know you well, which enables us to make the best match between you and a client. We look at a suitable role for you, but we also think it is important that there must be a fit between you and a client's corporate culture.

Secondment period:

  • You start your secondment period with the client. During this period, that will take about two years, your personal coach (fieldmanager) will visit you every month. Together you discuss your progress and talk about issues you encounter and how to solve them. Futhermore you talk about which training options are beneficial to your work (hard and soft skills) and how to follow these courses. Calco also organizes several events a year, so you can see your Calco colleagues and the trainees who were in your class.

Transition to the client:

  • After about two years, almost 90% of Calco trainees makes the switch to the client. However, this remains your own choice!
