Royal Meteorological Society

As the world aims to reach Net Zero carbon emissions, many new career opportunities are opening up as job roles become greener. The Royal Meteorological Society (RMetS) is the UK’s Professional and Learned Society for weather and climate, which includes working to support the next generation. Working with Green Careers Week, RMetS hopes to showcase some of the broad range of careers already available in weather and climate, provide guidance on what to study and how to access these opportunities, and encourage more people from diverse backgrounds to consider a career in these areas.

My Career So Far in Weather & Climate

Are you considering a career in weather, climate or climate change? Maybe you’re choosing which A Level/higher subjects to take, or starting to look at undergraduate courses, or maybe you’re already an undergraduate and wondering what to do next. In this free, online careers day organised by the Royal Meteorological Society, we asked people from UK Universities, the Met Office and other employers of meteorologists to tell you a bit about their current work and how they got there, and we’ll explore the best routes into meteorology.
