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 17th 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 500 Analytical Chemistry vacancies were published last week, with:
- 424 permanent roles
- 76 temporary or contract roles
Following last weeks dip there has been a small recovery in the Analytical Chemistry jobs market, this could be a direct reaction to more entry level candidates being around and clients timing their jobs to coincide with this time of year. It is positive to see a growth in the market place during this typically quiet time. However, in comparison to 2014 there has actually be a 12% decline which is interesting considering the overall buoyancy of the UK’s commerce.
