Chemical Engineer Vacancy Market – 2nd June 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.

This weeks summary is for week commencing 2nd June 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 55 Chemical Engineer jobs were published last week. The initial trend from early days with permanent vacancies topping temporary continues with 51 permanent jobs and only 4 temporary. However, perhaps the more un-predictable trend is the ups and downs week-on-week on number of vacancies. This week has seen a 41% drop in permanent roles and a 27% decrease in temporary vacancies. The drop in permanent is more dramatic than 2 weeks prior but temporary hasn’t taken as much of a knock, but is skewed slightly by remaining lower over recent weeks.
