A career to be proud of

What we look for

What we look for

In the first stage of the selection process, we’ll be looking at your application form against the essential and desirable criteria for the job which you will find on the job description. We use a competency-based approach to selection: looking at the knowledge, skills, abilities and experience of you as an individual. So, it’s really important that your application gives evidence against each of the essential and desirable criteria. We’re looking for real examples of what you did, why you did it and what the outcome was rather than just a description of your ability to something.

What we stand for

We have clear values and principles that we pride ourselves on as an organisation. In short, we’re looking for people who are innovative and imaginative in their approach, clear on how they communicate, driven and inspiring, and passionate about working together and building strong relationships to make us the most successful, sustainable and integral business we can be. We’d advise that you have a good read through our values and principles and include any relevant references to how you’ve demonstrated such values in your experience. As well as being crucial to our growth and development as an organisation, our values are in place to help individuals grow, develop and build a career to be proud of with the Met Office.
