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 May 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 683 Analytical Chemistry vacancies were published last week, which is a decrease on last weeks figure of 774, with:
- 582 permanent roles
- 101 temporary or contract roles
This weeks fluctuation is adhering to the pattern that has been emerging over the past five weeks which sees job numbers jump up one week and then decline the following. This is most likely due to the natural cycle of jobs moving from being released, added to job boards, then filled and removed again.
