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 4th April 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 400 Analytical Chemistry vacancies were published last week, with:
- 349 permanent roles
- 51 temporary or contract roles
There has been a sharp decline in the volume of analytical chemistry jobs posted in the last week, with over 30% fewer roles available. As both permanent and temporary job volumes down our best explanation is the combination of Easter holidays and the final week of the tax year. However, we should be able to tell if this is the case in next week’s report.
