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 21st March 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 519 Analytical Chemistry vacancies were published last week, with:
- 443 permanent roles
- 76 temporary or contract roles
Analytical Chemistry jobs continued to drop this week with a further 26% decline in jobs across permanent and temporary contracts. With only 10 working days until the new tax year commences, we expect to see a dramatic uplift in numbers over the next few weeks.
