The Bureau of Meteorology is undergoing a significant transformation to deliver a more customer centric, unified and resilient national operation. This is an exciting strategic direction for the Bureau which will transform the way we deliver services to Australian communities.

The future operating model for the Bureau will open new career pathways and enhance our culture to empower our people to learn and grow. As part of this transformation, we are introducing new roles to assist the Bureau in delivering world class weather products and services within the newly formed Community Services Group.

This group is comprised of Decision Support Services (DSS), Environmental Prediction Services (EPS), and National Production Services (NPS) which have been configured to enable scalable, national and resilient services. The DSS program will lead customer engagement within the Community Services Group with an overarching mission to deliver tailored, relevant and timely information to enable better decision making.
The DSS program is characterised by its shared understanding of the impact that weather, water, climate and oceans have on the decisions that Bureau customers make every day.

Operating with a national capability, the program will be accountable for leading engagement with the Australian community and the emergency management sector. This will be delivered by two dedicated teams: Hazard Preparedness and Response (HPR) and Community Engagement (CE).

The state/territory Senior Hydrologist HPR is located in each capital city across Australia and will report into the State HPR Manager. The role will work alongside other state and territory based HPR and CE staff. The successful candidate will have a unique opportunity to help grow the Bureau’s HPR capabilities in support of our emergency management partners.
During extreme weather events, this team is expected to undertake extended working hours as directed.
