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 23rd May 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 433 Validation Engineer jobs were published in the last week,
- 319 permanent roles
- 114 contract roles
Following last week’s exceptional job number, this week engineering jobs have dropped back down to numbers that are average for this year. The decline in jobs has impacted both permanent and contract jobs equally, with both seeing over a 40% reduction in numbers. We have noticed that this is becoming a trend in the recruitment market with more and more companies hesitating about expanding staffing numbers ahead of the upcoming Brexit Referendum. We foresee this pattern continuing until a decision has been made and the UK’s future clearer.
