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 19th October 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 489 Analytical Chemistry vacancies were published last week, with:
- 400 permanent roles
- 89 temporary or contract roles
There has been a further 29% decline in the number of Analytical Chemistry jobs posted in the last week, following a record high two weeks ago. Permanent jobs have been impacted the most with 175 fewer science jobs published in the last seven days. This reduction could be due to entry level jobs being filled following an influx of new entrants over the summer.
