Chemical Engineer Vacancy Market 4th August 2014

We asked last week, “Is the summer ‘slow down’ kicking in?” Clearly not…

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 week’s summary is for week commencing 1st August 2014 for the past week and relates to Chemical Engineer vacancies posted on CV Library, Monster, Reed, The Engineer, Just Engineers and LinkedIn.

Our results showed that from these job boards a total of 101 Chemical Engineer jobs were published in the last week, seeing a return to the higher rates seen earlier in our observation. In particular permanent vacancies increased by 53% to 89, the second highest weekly amount in the 13 weeks observed. Temporary roles have also risen 20% to 12 vacancies, maintaining the upper bracket seen previously.

With a joint 3rd highest level of roles overall this week, clearly the hypothesis hinting to a summer drop was wrong and fingers crossed this continues for the summer job hunters.
