He was Colonial Engineer for the Straits Settlements based in Singapore and played a key role in introducing electricity to Singapore in 1892. However he was involved in a public spat with James MacRitchie the Municipal Engineer who recommended against the introduction of electricity.
He was governor of Lagos Colony before coming to Newfoundland in 1899. The friction between McCallum and Prime Minister Robert Bond resulted in his recall in early 1901. McCallum then became governor of Natal in February 1901, arriving in his new province in May to take up residence in Pietermaritzburg. His last appointment came as governor of Ceylon in 1907.
McCallum retired from colonial service in 1913 and returned to England.
