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 25th April 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 497 Chemistry jobs were published last week, with:
- 387 permanent roles
- 110 temporary or contract roles
There has been a small decline in the volume of Analytical Chemistry jobs advertised in the last week. This is mostly evident in the contract market place, where numbers have dropped by 41%. Whether this is directly linked to market place confidence and commitment towards permanent recruitment or something else should soon become apparent.
