Chemical Engineer Vacancy Market – 12th May 2014

The engineering job market is a vast and very busy space so each week CK Engineers aims to review the current demand for Chemical Engineers and provide you with a breakdown of roles.  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 weeks summary is for week commencing 12th May 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 110 Chemical Engineer jobs were published last week.

  • 95 permanent roles
  • 15 contract & temporary roles

This initial analysis would lead to a conclusion that temporary vacancies in this area are down with only two websites (CV Library and Just Engineers) reaching more than 5 vacancies and the rest sitting at between 0 – 2 vacancies.

This is only our initial analysis so we will continue to monitor this job market on a weekly basis to provide an insight into trends & movements in the market.
