Meteorologist / producer

The Weather Channel has an opportunity for an outstanding meteorologist to join 
one of the world’s leading weather forecasting providers.  Creating compelling 
content for The Weather Channel’s UK website and mobile applications based upon 
your assessment of numerical weather prediction models, you will deliver 
innovative text and video content to cover breaking weather or major storms and 
help drive traffic to The Weather Channel.

A degree qualified meteorologist with at least two years operational 
forecasting experience and an in-depth knowledge of UK meteorology and 
geography, you must have solid writing skills and the ability to communicate 
weather information in an easy-to-understand way, combining forecasting 
terminology with laymen’s terms. Ideally you will have some media experience 
and be comfortable both of doing voice-overs and in front of camera.

Based at The Weather Channel’s UK forecasting office in Birmingham and 
reporting directly to TWC’s Global Media team in London, you will operate 
independently with the support of the meteorology team. The ability to react 
quickly to breaking weather news is a must and you must be able to work in a 
fast-paced, digital, deadline-driven environment without sacrificing quality. 
You should be able to work irregular hours if necessary to cover breaking 
weather. An understanding of the current digital media environment, publishing 
and social media would be helpful.

Applicants should be qualified to work within the UK. 

A competitive salary together with an excellent range of benefits is offered 
including pension contributions, life assurance and ill health income 
protection.
 
Please reply by e-mail to Bill Craig, TWC’s HR Advisor at 
bill.craig@optushr.co.uk enclosing an up-to-date cv, a covering letter 
detailing how you meet the requirements and details of your current salary. 

Applications close on November 6, 2014.
