CRA Vacancy Market – 12th of August 2014

The Clinical Research Associate jobs market has seen a slight increase in contract opportunities this week.

CK Clinical try to give you a picture of the state of the CRA jobs market in the UK.  Whether you are a CRA looking for a new role or an employer seeking new CRAs 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 CRA jobs have been advertised within the last 7 days.  As always, 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 weeks summary for week commencing the 5th of August 2014 relates to CRA vacancies posted on:

  • New Scientist
  • Monster
  • CV Library
  • Emedcareers
  • Pharmiweb
  • Willey job network
  • Access Science jobs.

Our results showed that from these job boards a total of 660 CRA jobs were published in the last week, compared to 655 the week before. This indicates that the job postings are largely staying at the same level at the moment, which is to be expected following the previous drop off. Postings should increase again at the beginning of September. The breakdown is as follows:

  • 570 permanent roles
  • 90 contract  roles

This indicates an increase in permanent roles and a decrease in contract roles. The increase in permanent postings balanced out the drop in contract and contributed to the overall slight rise.
