Analytical Chemistry Jobs Market – 8th June 2015

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 8th June 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 696 Analytical Chemistry vacancies were published last week, which is an increase on our last figure of 620, with:

  • 588 permanent roles
  • 108 temporary or contract roles

This week we have seen a significant rise in permanent roles in comparison with last weeks results, however they are not quite high enough to compete with other some of the record highs that we have experienced this year. This weeks results are really positive and show that the job market is recovering from the recent school holidays.
