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 2nd May 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 517 Chemistry jobs were published last week, with:
- 414 permanent roles
- 103 temporary or contract roles
Last week there was a small increase in the number of science jobs which brings the total number closer to the average formed throughout 2016. This increase was reflected in a growth in permanent roles, which grew from 387 to 414 whereas contract roles declined slightly.
