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 8th April 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 567 Analytical Chemistry vacancies were published last week, which is an increase on last weeks figure of 423, with:
- 464 permanent roles
- 103 temporary or contract roles
There has been a small uplift in numbers in the last week with an additional 144 science jobs added to UK job boards. The largest percentage of which is shown in permanent roles, but contract roles have also benefitted from this increase. This is quite unexpected as this period covers the Easter school holidays which traditionally results in a drop in job numbers and applications.
