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 25th August 2014 for the past week and relates to Chemical Engineer vacancies posted on:
- CV Library
- The Engineer
- Just Engineers
Our results showed that from these job boards a total of 77 Chemical Engineer jobs were published in the last week, seeing a slight drop of 23% overall. Breaking it down between the two areas, permanent took the smallest knock at just a 5% drop, while temporary vacancies were down 22% on last week.
It is almost expected to see a drop with many taking longer weekends as well as the still ongoing school summer holidays.
With the holiday season coming to a close at the end of this week (although it is a 4 day week), it will be interesting to see if this low continues or if it springs back to life – watch this space!
