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 13th September 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 589 chemistry jobs were published last week, with:
- 483 permanent roles
- 106 temporary or contract roles
There has been another positive week for Analytical Chemist vacancies, which have grown from 550 to 589 roles over the past 7 days. This increase has been across both permanent and interim jobs, with permanent seeing the greatest growth. With the summer holidays have drawn to a close it is fairly normal to see recruitment return to higher volumes at this time of year.
