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 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 648 Analytical Chemistry vacancies were published last week, which is a small increase on last weeks figure of 720, with:
- 564 permanent roles
- 84 temporary or contract roles
Following last weeks unexpected surge in Analytical Chemistry science jobs, this week has seen a small decline, however numbers still remain at a healthy level. This seems to have predominantly affected contract/temporary roles which saw a 31% drop in vacancies. So far 2015 seems to be a fluctuating year for contract workers in the field of analytical chemistry with jobs dropping to lows of 50, and topping at highs of 120.
