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 21st June 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 500 chemistry jobs were published last week, with:
- 410 permanent roles
- 90 temporary or contract roles
There has been a 6% growth in the number of advertised chemical analyst roles in the last week, with permanent roles growing 13% which is the opposite of the behaviours we are tracking within our other CK divisions.
The fluctuating trend that has been evolving over the last few months implies a degree of inconsistency in the market, but it is still a sign that some industries in the UK haven’t completely paused ahead of the Brexit vote.
