About Vario (3)
A Vario is a freelance lawyer who has gone through our rigorous assessment process and joined our community.
Vario is based on a freelance/flexible model. We are not able to contract with our Varios in an individual capacity; Varios are required to deliver their services through a corporate vehicle. Typically this will be a personal services company, although some Varios choose to go down the PAYE Umbrella company route (we don’t advise the Varios on which route to take, this is for each individual to decide what works best for them).
As a successful Vario applicant, you will go through an on boarding process to make sure you are assignment-ready. We will then keep in touch with you and as soon as a suitable assignment opportunity comes through we will let you know. As the assignment opportunities are very much driven by client needs, we can’t guarantee work; however being as flexible as possible on your side will help us place you into assignments. By the same token, Vario is not an exclusive arrangement, so there is no obligation on you to accept assignments offered to you, and you are free to accept work from other sources. All we ask is that you keep us updated around your availability.
No, if you are brought into the Vario hub you will still be able to pick up work from other providers/agencies all we ask is that you keep us informed of your availability so that we can contact you when you become available again.
