Work Experience Students

We offer a limited number of work experience placements for secondary school students interested in exploring the Bureau of Meteorology.

As Australia's national weather, climate, ocean and water agency, we offer students the opportunity to gain first-hand experience in our core weather and science services. Our placements also give you the chance to learn the fundamentals of a particular job or work environment.

Due to the limited number of placements, any experience you may have and your aptitude for the role is considered.

What to expect

Our work experience program aims to give opportunities to:

  • gain insight into and experience everyday work at the Bureau;
  • explore interests and work types at Bureau and in the science industry;
  • gain relevant work experience and skills; and
  • align school studies with career aspirations.
