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 Tuesday 19th July 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 456 chemistry jobs were published last week, with:
- 368 permanent roles
- 88 temporary or contract roles
There has been some stability in the scientific recruitment market over the last week with the total number of roles advertised remaining the same. Whilst there has been a small variance in numbers between permanent and interim roles it is overall rather a negligible fluctuation. We hope this is a sign that the demand for analytical chemists is on the up.
