Chemical Engineer Vacancy Market – 22/09/2014

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.  Please bear in mind that there is likely to be some repetition across jobs boards and some duplicate posting but our goal is to build up a picture of trends over time.

This week’s summary is for week commencing 22nd September 2014 for the past week and relates to Chemical Engineer vacancies posted on:

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

Our results showed that from these job boards a total of 89 Chemical Engineer jobs were published in the last week, seeing a drop by 23%. Breaking it down between the two areas, temporary has taken the biggest hit with a 62% drop on 2 weeks ago, while permanent vacancies have only taken a 12% hit over the same period.

This is a big blow for temporary vacancies which had been seeing strong growth over the previous weeks returning to the level seen in the last week in July (during a summer down period).

We will have to see how this pans out over coming weeks & whether the yoyo effect continues.
