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 28th 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 457 chemistry jobs were published last week, with:
- 374 permanent roles
- 83 temporary or contract roles
As anticipated, the result of the Brexit Referendum has had an impact on the recruitment of Analytical Chemists, with the volume of job roles dropping by over 8%. This has had a bearing on both permanent and interim roles which have dropped between 7 – 8% each. Hopefully this is a temporary glitch, and numbers will return to their normal levels over the next few weeks. We will continue tracking and will report back next week..
