Chemical Engineer Vacancy Market – 16th June 2014

Each week CK Engineers will be trying to give you a picture of the state of one of the disciplines we work with, the Chemical Engineers jobs market.  Whether you are a Chemical Engineer looking for a new role or an employer seeking new Chemical Engineers to join your team, keeping up to date with industry news that impacts you is essential.

Our tracking is based on each week screening some of the UKs leading vacancy boards for how many Chemical Engineer jobs have been advertised within the last 7 days. This weeks summary is for week commencing 13th June 2014 and relates to Chemical Engineer vacancies posted on

  • CV Library
  • Monster
  • Reed
  • The Engineer
  • Just Engineers
  • LinkedIn

Our results showed that from these job boards a total of 105 Chemical Engineer jobs were published last week, giving us the 2nd highest levels since we started monitoring the job market. The initial up down up down trend has also changed with a steady increase across all sections including:

  • 85 jobs on the permanent side giving us an 8% rise
  • However, temporary jobs are up to 20 vacancies giving us a 300% increase – the highest since we started observing!


We will continue to follow this to see if the positive incline carries on or whether vacancy levels start to even out. Also we will see if perhaps the summer period is the reason for the increase in temporary vacancies.
