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 7th March 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 386 Validation Engineer jobs were published in the last week,
- 273 permanent roles
- 113 contract roles
There has been a small increase in number of permanent jobs this week, with a total of 28 new roles being added across the 5 job boards we track. Contract roles have not fared quite so well and have declined by 18 during the same period. With the tax year coming to an end we believe this increase in perm recruitment is down to using up the remaining budgets.
