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 9th August 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 298 Validation Engineer jobs were published in the last week,
- 227 permanent roles
- 71 contract roles
Over the last week we have seen the volume of validation engineering jobs has declined by a huge 15% with declines in both permanent and contract roles. This drop reflects the pattern of behaviour we have seen within our engineering recruitment team who have also reported a drop in jobs across the entire sector. Whether this is the summer season making an impact remains to be seen.
