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 26th May 2014 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 101 Chemical Engineer jobs were published last week. The trend of permanent vacancies being up continues with:
- 86 permanent roles
- 15 contract roles
It is pleasing to see job numbers are returning to similar figures to the week before last. Figures include a 32% rise in permanent vacancies and a massive 114% on contract based roles, with an overall increase of 40%.
