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 4th October 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 776 chemistry jobs were published last week, with:
- 706 permanent roles
- 70 temporary or contract roles
This week we have seen a 28% increase in the number of analytical chemistry jobs being advertised in the past week. This increase has boosted the volume of permanent roles from 528 to 706, which is a 33% jump and great news for job seekers. In contrast there a drop in the number of contract roles by 9%. This continues to confirm our conclusion that the growing the demand for staff illustrates the industry is bouncing back after a few nervous months.
