As well as our Exeter HQ, we operate in another multi-million pound operational centre in Aberdeen, alongside many remote locations right across the country. But we’re not confined to the UK. With an ever-growing international presence, we work in some incredible and unexpected locations including Africa, the South Atlantic, even the Antarctic. It’s really up to you how far you go when you work with the Met Office.
Exeter & Devon
Devon’s regularly voted England’s best county - no great surprise when you consider the variety that it has to offer. Exeter is the beating heart of Devon and we’re proud to call it home. It’s a city for all, in all sorts of different ways. Love eating out? Everyone’s catered for. We’re home to world renowned chefs, intimate brasseries and award-winning places to eat and drink al-fresco. Bit of a shopaholic? There’s much to tempt you here, from big flagship high street names to independent boutiques. And while Exeter’s a modern, vibrant city, there’s heritage and history, with an incredible story on virtually every corner.
Fascinating history and jaw-dropping natural beauty, adrenalin rushes and peaceful moments, excitement, variety and much, much more – it’s all waiting for you in Devon. And as the only county with two coastlines, you’re never far from one of its 33 beaches. Whether you’re a book-on-the-beach person or surf’s up sea lover, a bike-ride-in-the-countryside person or a picturesque Sunday walk and afternoon tea lover, you’ll find your perfect spot in this county. For us, and our people, it’s an incredible and inspiring place to live and work, a county where work/life balance can be a day-to-day reality not an unrealistic paper dream. If you’re looking for something more exhilarating to do, we’re a couple of miles away from Sandy Park, home to the Exeter Chiefs, one of the UK and Europe’s top Rugby Clubs.
Sports & Social
Work hard, play hard. In our Exeter headquarters, you can use our onsite and heavily subsidised, fully equipped gym and fitness suite. It’s open 24/7 too! It has all the equipment you’d expect to find in any modern gym, with fitness instructors and daily classes (including Yoga) available. If you’re based in one of our other sites, many customers’ offer full use of their sports and social amenities. You can also join the Met Office Sports and Social Association which offers an exciting range of recreational activities throughout the year.
