During 2013, the Met Office recruited 181 employees to deliver essential services for government and commercial customers. Due to the complex nature of the Met Office’s work, many of the people it recruits are qualified at degree level or beyond, predominantly in scientific subjects such as mathematics, physical sciences and meteorology. Of those recruited in 2013, 79 were to roles mandated at graduate level or beyond. In addition, 11others have recorded a qualification at degree level or beyond on the Met Office’s internal database.
