Calum began his youth career with Ipswich Town and Southend United before joining English Premiership side Tottenham Hotspur in June 2007 at the age of 16. A regular in the Under 18 and Under 21 teams during his four years with Spurs, Calum never quite made the first team, although he was an un-used substitute for the London clubs UEFA Cup tie with Shaktar Donetsk in February 2009.

He later had a two month loan spell at League Two outfit Barnet, before he was released by Spurs at the end of the 2010-11 season. He signed a one year deal with Danish 1st Division club FC Hjørring that summer and after one season he returned to England, where he would sign for Conference South team Hayes & Yeading United. Calum made 35 appearances and scored 3 goals during the 2012-13 season, but left at the end of the campaign.

At age 22, Calum arrived in Dundee in the summer of 2013 for a trial with United, and within days manager Jackie McNamara had signed him up on a two year deal. Despite making a handful of appearances at the start of the season, his involvement in the first team dwindled by the turn of the year, and he mostly became a fringe player. A better start to the 2014-15 season saw him earn a place in United's midfield and in March 2015, he collected a Scottish League Cup runners-up medal against Celtic. Injuries ultimately saw him drift in and out of the side once again and upon the expiration of his contract in June, Calum agreed a move to English League Two champions Burton Albion.
