    I have been working at Met Office full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Plenty of travel opportunities. Many internal job opportunities and relatively easy to switch between roles from within the organisation. Plenty of staff support from management. Offices are embracing modern working styles.

    Cons

    Some uncertainty with job security dependant on government funding and direction to a certain extent. Difficult to find positives about 24/7 shift working pattern.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing with embracing new ways of working and embracing flexible working opportunities, 50 50 roles etc.

    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
