Analytical Chemistry Jobs Market – 23rd May 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 23rd May 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 477 Chemistry jobs were published last week, with:

  • 363 permanent roles
  • 114 temporary or contract roles

This week we have tracked a small uplift in the number of scientific jobs being advertised. These roles are predominantly contract and temporary positions, which implies that science recruitment is following the same trend CK is tracking in its other divisions.

We have identified a pattern of behaviour that we are attributing to the upcoming Brexit Referendum and the uncertainty around the UK’s future. As such, CK clients are opting to recruit contract staff rather than commit to permanent expansion of their workforce, thereby safe guarding them against whatever decision comes from the vote. As the results are not due until 23-24 June, we foresee this continuing for the coming weeks.

If you are looking for a new science job please search our vacancies

Environmental Chemists on the Rise

Environmental chemists are much needed in most jobs, particularly in the pharmaceutical industry, reports ibnlive.com.

All industries need environmental officers to assess the effect the business has on the environment, and find ways to reduce that impact. The job essentially involves knowing the effects of chemicals (or whatever the business deals with) on the environment. For example, how can a pharmaceutical firm safely and effectively dispose of waste products or leftover stock?

Industries are taking a much more proactive role in environmental issues, so that the role of chemists is becoming prominent. Pharmaceutical, chemical and waste disposal industries all obviously need environmental chemists, but recently even IT firms are beginning to employ people to monitor their environmental impact. A solid grounding in chemistry is of great importance, and it is often recommended that those looking into such a role go on environmental courses.
