Since March 2020, job hunters have seen a sharp decline in new jobs being listed globally. However, due to the recent lifting of some lockdown policies, job postings are now stabilising and beginning to rise again in the science sectors. This means that now could be the perfect time to search for a new role, as companies resume recruitment activities.
Globally, job postings have stabilised for the first time since February, according to Indeed.
Reassuringly, job vacancies across the scientific sectors are on the rise after hitting their lowest at the beginning of March.
According to CV Library, the number of pharmaceutical, medical and scientific job postings has increased by 36%.
The job site Reed suggests that there are almost 400 more jobs available now than there were one month ago.
In the UK and Ireland, jobs are on the rise in many key industries including biotechnology, chemistry, pharmaceutical, environmental and life sciences.
