CK support Sheffield University Hallam 2016 STEM careers fair

On Wednesday 26th October CK Group’s science and engineering recruitment teams exhibited at the STEM – placement and graduate jobs fair, which was held by Sheffield Hallam University.

The event aims to support students who are currently on STEM related courses to find employment on graduation. With the volume of people working within STEM steadily dropped it has become a real risk for the long term growth of the UK economy. This has driven an increase in promotional campaigns and events such as this aimed at encouraging young people to enter the sector.

The STEM – placement and graduation jobs fair was a great opportunity for students and graduates to talk to companies from across South Yorkshire to discuss how best to start their career. Our Recruitment Consultants felt there was an immense amount of enthusiasm from other exhibitors and were impressed by the volume of students that attended, eager to find out as much information as possible.

Our results showed that from these job boards a total of 454 chemistry jobs were published last week, with:

With an overarching 7% drop in Analytical Chemistry jobs, this has been reflected with a 5% drop in permanent roles and 13% in interim positions. It is difficult at this stage to know whether this behaviour is further signs that the sector has yet to fully recover following the Brexit result, whether its just the normal seasonal drop or a combination of them both.
