Analytical Chemistry Jobs Market – 29th February 2016

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 29th February and relates to adverts posted for Analytical Chemists on:

  • New Scientist
  • Monster
  • CV Library
  • Emedcareers
  • Pharmiweb
  • Willey job network
  • Access Science jobs.

Our results showed that from these job boards a total of 490 Analytical Chemistry vacancies were published last week, with:

  • 426 permanent roles
  • 64 temporary or contract roles

There has been a small uplift in the volume of Analytical Chemistry jobs over the last week. This is mostly visible in contract jobs. This could be a result of the upcoming tax year end causing a reduction in the number of advertised permanent roles. If this is the cause we foresee this pattern continuing for another 3-4 weeks before permanent recruitment begins to pick up.

CK attend CIA Annual Dinner

CK Science’s Liam O’Connell and Victoria Walker attending the Chemical Industry Association’s Annual Dinner on Thursday 19th November. The dinner, which was held at Grosvenor House Hotel in London, had over 900 industry professionals including senior representatives of chemical companies and leading figures from government, industry, stakeholders and the news media join together for an evening of networking and intelligence gathering.

With a speaker list that consisted of the CEO of Solvay who is also the President of CEFIC (equivalent of CIA within Europe), the MP for Local Growth and Northern Powerhouse as well as CIA’s President and Chief Executive, the event covered some highly topical industry concerns.

Tom Crotty, President of the CIA took the opportunity to recognise future challenges when he said “We have the opportunity to build a new European chemical business around shale and I believe to rejuvenate our three key UK chemical clusters with energy, infrastructure and skills in Central Scotland, Merseyside and Teesside.” But warned “If government is genuinely committed to a manufacturing resurgence they need to understand that a thriving chemical industry is vital.
We need to urgently address our energy base if we want a thriving UK chemical industry.”

To discuss the event in more detail please contact CK Science’s Operations Director, Liam O’Connell on loconnell@ckscience.co.uk
