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 this Analytical Chemistry vacancy market 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 role 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 3rd November 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 483 Analytical Chemistry vacancies were published last week with, which is a small increase since last week:
• 410 permanent roles
• 73 temporary or contract roles
This week has seen a sudden drop in science jobs with temporary and contract positions falling by 40%. Whether this is a short term glitch or symptom of something else only time will tell. Next weeks update will identify if its going to be a trend or just a blip.
