The Bureau of Meteorology is Australia’s national weather, climate and water agency. Through regular forecasts, warnings, monitoring and advice spanning the Australian region and Antarctic territory, we provide one of the most fundamental and widely used services of government. Our work helps people to deal with the harsh realities of their natural environment, including drought, floods, fires, storms, tsunami and tropical cyclones.
We employ around 1,500 staff, and provide surveillance, forecasts and warning services 24 hours a day, every day of the year. We build and maintain the national observational infrastructure and provide the information and communication technology, research and corporate support needed to deliver these essential services to the Australian community. Our workforce is geographically dispersed, with more than 60 workplaces across Australia in capital cities, regional and remote locations as well as offshore islands and Antarctica.
In an organisation as diverse as the Bureau there are excellent prospects for building an enjoyable and exciting career.
