For the pros Met Eireann are hiring.

For the professionals out there who want to improve the Irish forecast or get to the bottom of the Shannon radar issues.
Met eireann are looking for a
A Hydrometeorologist (a flood expert). I didn't know such a thing existed.

And a normal forecaster.

Details on publicjobs.ie

Id work for Met Eireann for free.

My whole day is spent looking at weather anyways.

Would have needed a Hydrometeorologist this evening. Absolutely poured for 10 minutes and flooded the whole garden even though the radar showed showers in Ulster only!

Looks more like a flood forecaster hydrologist than what's usually meant by a hydrometeorologist I'd say.

Like most ME jobs, money is crap for what they want you to have and Irish conditions

Do you have to be accurate?
Most of the stuff I've read on the ME site in recent times has been off.

The country will see some sunshine, other areas will see rain, other areas will be overcast but generally nice, some strong winds expected along the west (throw in a few other meteorological terms and pointy figure at a map of Ireland)

Do I get the job?

Unless you're an existing public servant or working in certain public bodies, appointees start at the beginning of the incremental scales. Guess how I found this out

It's really limiting the applicants I reckon.. it's grand for Irish people maybe but anyone international (which is sort of necessary when flood forecasting isn't a big thing in Ireland) who has that much knowledge and experience will earn much more money by going to work for a consultancy or insurance company in London or the Netherlands
