About the Met Office
Like millions you probably know us 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?
We own one of the largest Super Computers in the world? Or that organisations across the world – from governments and the military, to the NHS and utility companies, rely on our expertise to operate safely and efficiently? We even provide forecasting services for sporting events, such as Wimbledon. Through world-leading science and cutting-edge technology, through idea generation and enthusiasm, we collaborate to challenge the ordinary every day because we believe in the best. The best for our customers, the best for your career.
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 challenged, 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 be the global partner of choice for weather and climate services’, we have a set of values:
We're A Force For Good
Our planet matters. The time is now, and we’re the people to make a difference. That’s why we take our environmental and social impact seriously.
We're Experts By Nature
It’s in our nature to be curious - always learning and developing to do things better. We trust in each other’s expertise and take pride in being the best in our field.
We Live and Breathe It
Helping people make better decisions to stay safe and thrive is what we live for. Their lives guide our decisions and their trust guides our actions.
We're Better Together
Great minds don’t always think alike. And we like it that way. We believe partnerships, inclusivity and honesty make us far greater than the sum of our parts.
We Keep Evolving
When we’re not looking up, we look ahead. We push the boundaries to make tomorrow better for our customers. Forecasting the future is one thing. Creating it is another.
These values 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 people to help us achieve our aims for the future.
