    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Met Office in July 2015.

    Interview

    Phone interview asking questions about technology and meteorology. The interviewer was the hiring manager and instantly made the met office seem an attractive place to work. Trying to work out ones passions and motivation. General background questions. Good interview process
