The starting salary will be £30,932 with opportunities to progress to £33,925 over time. This role attracts a market forces supplement of £1,125 per annum paid quarterly, pro-rated from the date of taking up the appointment to 31 March 2022 - this scheme is currently under review.

We believe that well supported teams deliver the most effective outcomes and that's why you will enjoy the benefits of a flexible working day, aligned as much as possible around you and your lifestyle.
Who we are
The weather. It impacts all of us, all the time. But for some people, those impacts can mean real suffering. Landslides, floods, snowfall, and other extreme weather events can cost lives.
At the Met Office, we can't control the weather, but we can try to forecast these life changing events and help to reduce the impacts by allowing people time to prepare. We're great at doing this already, but we can be better, and that's why we need your help.
The UK Government has invested heavily in Met Office IT, with a £1.2B investment in a new supercomputer capability that will help us to increase our forecasting capability, but IT is only as good as the teams that can exploit it.
We're looking for developers to work with us to create outcomes from this investment, people who want to make a difference to the world we live in, who want to save lives and livelihoods across the world, not just in the UK.
A career at the Met Office opens a wealth of opportunities to not only work with world class partners, such as Microsoft, ESRI, Amazon and many others, but also to challenge them to create solutions for Met Office problems.
You'll be able to see your work on millions of devices through our award winning weather app, and know that solutions that you helped to build are helping the world prepare for the impacts of climate change.
We see our developers as future technical leaders and that's why we invest heavily in training and development opportunities, not only in technical skills, but also in leadership and management, with the aim of helping you to be all that you be.
Our values - it's who we are:
We're the Met Office, come and join us and help us to make a difference.
As part of the Solutions Delivery team, you will deliver and integrate secure well-engineered software to form operational services for a range of users. Providing valuable weather and climate information and services, our work enables the public and industry to make better decisions to stay safe and thrive.
