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 29th February 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 490 Analytical Chemistry vacancies were published last week, with:
- 426 permanent roles
- 64 temporary or contract roles
There has been a small uplift in the volume of Analytical Chemistry jobs over the last week. This is mostly visible in contract jobs. This could be a result of the upcoming tax year end causing a reduction in the number of advertised permanent roles. If this is the cause we foresee this pattern continuing for another 3-4 weeks before permanent recruitment begins to pick up.
