Observations are fundamental to almost all the services the Met Office provides – as direct data and products; initialising Numerical Weather Prediction and other models; for verification of forecasts; and the basis for many weather/climate related consultancy services; and for providing evidence of climate change. By using state-of-the-art weather instruments we extract as much information from the atmosphere as possible.
As a Project Manager, you’ll help keep our all-important Observations infrastructure ahead of the game. Working in a creative and diverse environment, you will be driving new developments and making things happen. Technology could range from radar systems through to surface instruments and upper air sensing probes. From researching and managing the implementation process of new instruments, to co-ordinating the upgrade of existing technology, the role is varied and dynamic. You will help to deliver medium risk projects, using agile (DSDM Atern) or classic waterfall (Tailored PRINCE2) as necessary.
