Each week CK Engineers will be trying to give you a picture of the state of one of the disciplines we work with, the Validation Engineers jobs market. Whether you are a Validation Engineer looking for a new role or an employer seeking new Validation 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 Validation 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 12th July 2016 for the past week and relates to Validation Engineer vacancies posted on:
- The Engineer
- Just Engineers
Our results showed that from these job boards a total of 336 Validation Engineer jobs were published in the last week,
- 264 permanent roles
- 80 contract roles
The on going uncertainty occurring in the UK as a result of Brexit and the knock on effect it has had in the political and economic world, has continued to affect job numbers this week with a further 8% decline. Over the last four weeks this has equated to a 21% drop in total affecting both permanent and interim roles, but contractor roles have been most surprising as we have tracked a 42% decrease!
