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 27th September 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 605 chemistry jobs were published last week, with:
- 528 permanent roles
- 77 temporary or contract roles
The drop experienced last week was very much a temporary measure as this week we have tracked a 5% growth. This has brought the total volume of science jobs to the highest we have seen since March this year. This has had a knock effect on permanent roles which has seen a 13% growth on last week’s numbers. Unfortunately interim roles have declined by 26% bringing this week’s numbers to less than 100 for the first time in nearly 5 weeks.
