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 7th June 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 518 Chemistry jobs were published last week, with:
- 396 permanent roles
- 122 temporary or contract roles
Contrary to our prediction, Analytical Chemist jobs have actually grown this week rather than continue the downward trend we had anticipated. The total number of jobs has increased by 8%, which has facilitated growth in both contract and permanent roles. With the referendum only weeks ago, it may not have the negative impact we first though!
