The Met Office is the UK’s national meteorological service. We are the experts in weather and climate forecasting, and we skilfully predict the weather for today, tomorrow, next week and next season while looking further ahead at how the climate may change over the coming decades.

Through world-leading science and cutting-edge technology, our teams support government, business and industry, emergency responders, the military and the public to make informed decisions to keep people safe and help them to thrive. We provide forecasting services for sporting events and music festivals. We also collaborate with organisations around the world to provide vital weather and climate services and advance global understanding through research. And our forecasts reach as far as space.

We work together and rely on each other to do what we do.

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 helping us achieve our purpose.
