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 25th 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 624 chemistry jobs were published last week, with:
- 531 permanent roles
- 93 temporary or contract roles
Once again analytical scientist jobs have increase with another 6% growth in numbers. This is mostly due to the demand for permanent roles once again in exceeding the 500 mark, whereas there has been a small decline in contract roles, which have fallen from 102 to 93.
