The Met Office work experience campaign is currently being advertised for work experience in summer 2013. For information about summer placements for A level and undergraduate students go here - DEADLINE 31st January 2013. For information about work experience for students in years 10-12 look here - DEADLINE 31st January 2013. The majority of posts will be based in Exeter.
The Society sometimes offers a small number of work experience placements. Unfortunately we are not able to offer any work experience placements in 2013. The Society is mainly an administrative body (i.e. not directly forecasting) and work experience placements tend to be within our membership, education and public engagement departments. Work ranges from helping to develop classroom resources, to researching ways of lowering the society s carbon footprint to helping the society set up for an exhibition or conference. However, there are sometimes opportunities to sit in on radio broadcasts and to attend talks. Some of our past students made a diary of their week with us at the society, so to get some idea of what we may offer please take a look at their work on the links below. Also please take a look at the other careers information on this website.
For more information about our work experience placements please feel free to email
Below are some of the students who have been at the Society on work experience
You can see Will Copeland, our first work experience student's picture to the right. Will is a keen storm chaser and loves taking photographs of all kinds of weather. We have used some of these in our publications.
