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.

Happy New Year from everyone at CK Science! 2015 was a good year for science jobs in the UK – there was a growth across the sector as a whole and an average 12% increase in the number of advertised Analytical Chemistry jobs. We hope this continues throughout 2016 and we are already seeing positive signs as there has been an 8% increase in advertised jobs in comparison to this time last year!
