This thread will provide a wealth of information about consulting careers at Varios and Varios consulting jobs to candidates looking for new consultancy opportunities.
In producing the recently published Definitive Guide to UK Consulting Firms (see: http://news.top-consultant.com/guide_to_consulting_firms.aspx), we have amassed company profiles for 189 consulting employers. As many of the discussions started on the forum revolve around what it is like to work at different firms, we thought we'd create anchor threads for the firms we have profiles for, to create a place where readers can share additional information about consulting jobs and careers at each of these firms - in this case careers at Varios.
Below is copied the profile information about Varios. If you know of other sources of information about Varios consulting jobs, or can provide your own insights of working or interviewing there, or can add anything else constructive for people searching the site for information about them - please reply to this thread and add your input. We'll roll this out to lots of consulting employers over the coming weeks and hopefully can create a great repository of information about consulting employers like Varios.

1. Name of consulting firm
2. About our company
Leaving a job in the public, private or third sector can be a daunting prospect. For most, it’s the start of a process of finding a new job, but for some it can be the springboard for a new future. Perhaps you want to be your own boss – using all those skills to deliver a service to other businesses or individuals, or maybe it’s a complete change of direction you are looking for. Either way, it’s a big decision and it is now that you need the best advice. Friends and family will encourage you – and that’s very important – but you also need someone who will ‘give it to you straight’. Impartial advice to answer those important questions: ‘Should I set up my own company?’, ‘How will I make money?’, ‘Can I afford to do it?’, ‘Am I the right sort of person to go it alone?’. Varios is here to help – with experienced advisors, consultants and trainers who understand the difficulties of moving on from employment because they have been there and developed successful businesses themselves.
