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 6th July 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 699 Analytical Chemistry vacancies were published last week, with:
- 603 permanent roles
- 96 temporary or contract roles
There has been a surge in demand for permanent Analytical Chemists in the past few weeks indicating further confidence and investment in the chemical industry. This is reinforced by a small decline in temporary or contract positions, as clients are prepared to commit to a longer term workforce. Whether this will continue through the summer months remains to be seen.
