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 31st 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 509 Analytical Chemistry vacancies were published last week, with:
- 457 permanent roles
- 52 temporary or contract roles
This week’s figures highlight the impact the changing market place during the summer holidays with a growth in permanent jobs and decline in temporary contracts. At its lowest in early August only 340 permanent roles were being advertised, and this week this has grown to 457. Whereas, during this same period there were 107 contract roles advertised, and this has now dropped to just 52 this week.
