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 18th 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 572 Analytical Chemistry vacancies were published last week, with:
- 391 permanent roles
- 181 temporary or contract roles
There has been a small increase in the volume of roles within the science jobs market over the last week, continuing the upward trend we have seen over the last couple of weeks. More surprisingly the greater fluctuation has been between permanent and contract roles with permanent seeing a drop of 15%, whereas temporary jobs grew by 77%. If this continues next week we will need to explore why this trend is emerging.
