About Met Office

Like millions of people, you probably know the Met Office best for the weather that you hear on the news or read on your phone. But did you know that our forecasts reach as far as space? Or that organisations across the world - from governments and the military, to transport and utility companies, rely on our expertise to operate safely and efficiently? Through world-leading science and cutting-edge technology, we work together to question the ordinary every day because we believe in the best.

One area of the Met Office cannot function without the others. Our engineers keep data flowing; our science and scientific software engineers make data meaningful; and our sales, marketing, consultancy and communications professionals ensure that our forecasts and meteorological products and services reach our customers. The breadth and depth of our work is incredibly varied but whatever area you work in, you'll be developed and fascinated in a career where whatever you do, your work will make a valuable contribution to the bigger picture. A career to be proud of.

To help us achieve our aim to 'work at the forefront of weather and climate science for protection, prosperity and well-being', we have a set of values (Visionary, Drive, United, Integrity, Clear, Inspiring) that are at the heart of the Met Office and help us to create the culture we need to achieve our vision. They inform how we work, our behaviours, how we engage with our customers and how we recruit talented and diverse people to help us achieve our aims now and in the future.

We offer a variety of early career opportunities from apprenticeships and year in industry placements, to trainee forecasting and graduate level roles. Further details can be found on our careers site.
