Each week, CK Science is providing a snapshot of the Analytical Chemistry jobs market. Over time, we aim to give you a picture of how it changes and evolves, and most importantly, how this may impact on you depending on overall demand and seasonal changes. So whether you are an Analyst looking for a new science job or an employer seeking new Chemist to join your team, we hope that this market snapshot helps you with your decision making.
Our tracking is based on each week screening some of the UKs leading vacancy boards for how many Analytical Chemistry jobs have been advertised within the previous week.
This summary was completed on Monday 10th August and relates to adverts posted for Analytical Chemists on:
- New Scientist
- CV Library
- Willey job network
- Access Science jobs.
Our results showed that from these job boards a total of 409 Analytical Chemistry vacancies were published last week, with:
- 340 permanent roles
- 69 temporary or contract roles
There has been a 40% decrease in the number of Analytical Science jobs in the past week which is a phenomenal drop and taking the total number of jobs down to an all time low. The decline has affected both permanent and contract roles, bring them both down to their lowest figure of the year so far. With it being peak season for holidays we are hopefully these are only a seasonal glitch but this will be verified next week when we expect to see the same trend continue.
