Graduate Meteorologist@Bureau of Meteorology

Closing date: 24 July 2024
Campus: Bureau of Meteorology; Graduate Meteorology Programme
Division: Environmental, Earth & Geosciences (Science & Technology)
Government: Federal (Government & Defence)

Get paid to study and take your physics and maths out of the classroom and into the real world Work as a graduate meteorologist through a 10-month intensive formal training program from late January to late November 2025.

You’ll learn how to:

  • apply various scientific techniques, including data visualisation and analysis tools.
  • analyse, and interpret meteorological data sources and numerical weather prediction model output to forecast atmospheric conditions.

You’ll be able to transform studied theoretical knowledge into a solid foundation of skills on which to use to build your career.

Use the skills you learn to be there when it matters most for all Australians and all Australia, every day Learn from some of Australia’s leading scientists as you develop a deep knowledge of services for severe weather, marine and Antarctic environments, climate, water and volcanic ash prediction. A day in this role can include preparing and communicating weather forecasts for the public as well as specific users such as the emergency services sector.

Develop your skills among other like-minded scientists and future meteorologists.

We’re looking for graduates with a demonstrated commitment to life-long learning and a desire to work with the community, customers, partners, and stakeholders at the heart of our operations. The role includes working in a diverse team environment and using your initiative to solve problems and develop the skills needed to deliver impact and value to customers.

Post course

After successful completion of the training program, Graduates will advance to Broadband 2 classification with incremental salary advancements, as they gain professional experience and meet work performance expectations, ranging from $65,526 to $101,022 plus shift penalties and an additional 15.4% Superannuation. For further information please refer to the Bureau of Meteorology Enterprise Agreement 2024.
