The Met Office is the UK’s internationally-renowned national weather and 
climate service. We have been providing world-leading weather forecasts for 
more than 150 years and our public services are a part of the everyday life for 
the British public.

Everything the Met Office does is underpinned by world-class weather and 
climate science. Our leading edge capabilities assist the UK and the 
international community in meeting the challenges of forecasting the weather 
and understanding and planning for climate change. We deliver a wide range of 
services to both public and private sector partner organisations, through 
sophisticated big data technology and a resilient 24x7 operational capability. 
Employing approximately 2000 people, principally at our headquarters located in 
Exeter, the Met Office also operates from around 50 other sites across the UK 
and overseas. The Met Office represents the UK Government on many international 
and inter-governmental bodies, including the World Meteorological Organization.

We are now seeking an eminent scientist with a world class reputation in 
atmospheric sciences to ensure that we remain at the cutting edge of weather 
and climate science.  As Chief Scientist you will enable us to exploit this 
science to deliver our mission: protecting life and property, enhancing 
well-being and contributing to economic growth. As we move forward it is vital 
that we maintain and promote our scientific and forecasting integrity, 
especially in the sensitive area of climate change and in fulfilment of our 
role as the authoritative voice for weather and climate on behalf of the UK 
Government.
