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.
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.
Our values - it's who we are:
We're a force for good
We're experts by nature
We live and breathe it
We're better together
We keep evolving
We're the Met Office, come and join us and help us to make a difference.
