    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Met Office (Exeter, England (UK)) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I submitted an online application, submitting a cover letter and my CV. Then I was offered an interview a month later. It was a group of 3 interviewers who took turns asking questions and were very friendly and encouraging. They were primarily interested in academic work that I had done which might be relevant to the post.

    Interview Questions

    • There were general questions about research projects that I had done as well as technical questions about developing a program for customers and how one might test programs. Also some questions about the Met Office main customers and areas.   Answer Question
