From the office in Houten you will work in either morning or evening shifts assigned according to a roster, that is assembled well in advance in consultation, making it easy to combine work and private life.

Activities include:

  • Ability to write detailed weather forecasts and provide appropriate background information.
  • Monitor and analyse new weather data as it becomes available and determine whether a change in weather forecasts is warranted.
  • Ability to effectively present information and respond to questions from colleagues and clients.
  • Collaborate effectively with an international team of meteorologists worldwide.

  • You have a degree in meteorology, atmospheric sciences or another related field. Or, you can prove beyond doubt you have acquired a high level of meteorological knowledge in a different way.
  • Preferably experience with maritime weather and wave forecasts.

  • Good communication skills in English, both oral and written, and highly preferable also in Dutch.
