    Pros

    Working in a global centre of Excellence for weather and climate services. The Met Office has a wide range of roles ranging from Technology to Science and so you learn a lot of new skills and knowledge. Salaries and benefits are good compared to many public sector bodies. There is access to the Civil Service Pension scheme. The Head Office in Exeter has a modern spacious environment with a restaurant, cafe and grounds to walk around. Staff are friendly and from a range of backgrounds and nationalities. There is a gym in Exeter and numerous clubs for staff to get involved in ranging from Brass bands to Language clubs.

    Cons

    You are asked by people daily what the weather is

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Met Office (Exeter, England) in December 2019.

    Interview

    Went to their HQ and had a half an hour interview with time for an interview requiring different statistical analysis methods. There was also a prepared exercise to present a brief for a meeting with a client. Were fairly welcoming, however equal knowledge of coding and business techniques were required.

    Interview Questions

    • Was presented with a simple piece of code, and had to recommended ways to improve it.   Answer Question
