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 Tuesday 12th July 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 456 chemistry jobs were published last week, with:
- 358 permanent roles
- 98 temporary or contract roles
There has been a 9% drop in the total number of advertised analytical chemistry jobs in the last week. This is reflected in the continued decline in permanent work, with the vast majority of UK businesses opting for interim workers whilst the dust settles, our new PM takes control and a decision is made about how the UK will establish itself post Brexit. With so many aspects of the UK’s infrastructure coping with uncertainty we are anticipating the demand for contract recruitment to continue growing over the next six months.
