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 1st November 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 625 chemistry jobs were published last week, with:
- 530 permanent roles
- 95 temporary or contract roles
There have only been minor fluctuations in the volume of analytical chemistry jobs this week, with the total growing by just 1 position. Within permanent and contract roles there have been similar changes with perm roles decreasing by one, and interim growing by 1. All in all it has been a very stable few weeks in scientific recruitment.
