Analytical Chemistry Jobs Overview

Analytical Chemistry Job


Welcome to our deep dive into Analytical Chemistry jobs. We work with top Chemistry professionals across many niche disciplines within the sector, whether they are as clients, as candidates looking to start their careers or well established Chemists looking for their next challenge or contract. Here we deep dive into Analytical Chemistry. Find out how we work, discover key trends and take a look at the roles we have in this fascinating area.

What is Analytical Chemistry?
This field covers the implementation of both analytical instruments and processes used to separate, identify, and quantify chemical matter. Those skilled in Analytical Chemistry deduce chemical structures as well as their behaviour in differing conditions. It covers a variety of purposes including drug development, forensic analysis and toxicology. Research and development of formulation and processes is key to continually improve end products. It has become an important function to help a company gather the needed information to move a product from development into the commercialisation phase. 

What are the key trends in Analytical Chemistry?
Many sources are talking about block-chain technology and how this can help with areas within analytical chemistry. There are still considerations that need to be ironed out but most agree that this technology can help improve security and innovation. As block-chain data is not owned by any one individual, each person involved in the transaction has the opportunity to keep track of the data which limits the risks of inaccurate reporting and helps the individuals involved remain honest in their transactions. Information can be shared in an open or closed community (a dedicated community of experts) by sharing information safely with all stakeholders in real time, following the rules set by this community without the need for validation or authorization by third parties. As everyone is working on the same data it reduces time to market and innovation is facilitated.

Where we work: 
We have a very strong foundation in recruitment across the scientific, chemical, medical device, food and drink and biotech industries. We work with the best and therefore have a wide range of Analytical Chemistry jobs across drug formulation and development, chemical and forensic analysis, process development, validation and toxicology. The types of roles we typically cover are within Analytical Chemistry, Cell Biology and Fermentation, Quality and Quality Assurance, Molecular Biology, Production, Sales and Commercial Team and Biochemistry. Our Clients are also looking for HPLC Analysts, Analytical Development Chemists as well as Analytical Assistants or Technicians.

The way we work:
We work in a consultative way with both our clients and candidates. When you are looking for a new permanent job or new contract role within the scientific sector, SRG, as market leaders, are the best placed recruitment consultancy to help you find the right place for your next move. As a team, we are specialised, so our scientific and clinical teams fully understand the roles that they each deal with. We really get to know the people we work with, whether that is our clients (their culture, their environment, their team) or candidates (motivations, career aspirations, the environment you want to work in). We never try to send people to companies that won’t suit them and when working with our client companies we don’t bombard you with cv’s to fill our own internal quota numbers.
