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 2nd August 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 489 chemistry jobs were published last week, with:
- 398 permanent roles
- 91 temporary or contract roles
After two weeks of stability, analytical chemistry jobs have grown by 7%, reflected with a nominal increase in both permanent and temporary roles. In conclusion, whilst numbers do not look likely to revisit volumes we saw earlier in the year, there does seem to be some degree of consistency which may imply the dust is beginning to settle and businesses are committing to recruitment once more.
