Who are we?
The Adelaide Hub is the Bureau of Meteorology’s technical work centre, situated on Kaurna land it was bestowed with the name, Tipu Trruku (Spark Centre). We service areas of New South Wales, Victoria, West Australia, Northern Territory and a number of South Pacific Islands. Staff based in the Adelaide Hub travel far and wide by vehicle, plane, helicopter, and boat, over land and sea.
Our infrastructure includes weather RADARs, Automatic Weather Stations (AWS), upper air systems, tide gauges, rainfall, and other meteorological observational equipment. These sites deliver essential weather information to our internal and external stakeholders and their performance is vital. To ensure accuracy we routinely service this equipment throughout the year.
Monitoring these networks and ensuring a continuous stream of observational data 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, is our service to the Australian public. Checking for data quality and performing data interrogation is a substantial part of our job; intervening when needed to keep data online – hitting the road in the case of fault repairs, essential upgrades, or installations.
We collect and store a wide variety of metadata and maintain records of our operational activities. We coordinate maintenance and servicing activities at the many buildings and facilities which power and house our equipment.
Throughout our work, we engage with stakeholders, contractors, and support staff. Liaising with the public and providing a good customer experience is an important aspect of the role.
We create a workplace culture which actively supports the health, safety, and wellbeing of all its staff and promotes inclusion and diversity.
