CRA Vacancies Market – 28th March 2016

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 as the pharmaceutical jobs market in the UK moves incredibly fast.

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 week’s summary for week commencing the 28th of March 2016 relates to CRA vacancies posted on:

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

Our results showed that on these job boards a total of 564 CRA jobs were published in the last week:

  • 460 permanent roles
  • 104 contract roles

Following 10 weeks of incredibly strong CRA job numbers, this week which is one of the final weeks of this tax year, has seen the job volumes slump. Dropping by 186 (there are, however, going to be some duplications across the job boards we track), it’s the first sure sign we have had this year that CRA recruitment will be affected by other influences. Both permanent and contract roles were affected, with permanent jobs tracked at their lowest number since the first week in January. We anticipate this being a short term issue with numbers returning to their normal levels in the next few weeks.

CRA Vacancies Market – 14th March 2016

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 as the pharmaceutical jobs market in the UK moves incredibly fast.

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.

  • Willey job network
  • Access Science jobs.

Our results showed that on these job boards a total of 664 CRA jobs were published in the last week:

  • 556 permanent roles
  • 108 contract roles

We predicted a few weeks ago that there would be an on going decline in the volume of advertised clinical research roles due to the approaching end of the tax year. Contrary to our expectations, last week the volume of jobs increased, especially for permanent roles. However, this week there has been a huge decline in job numbers, mostly within permanent roles, bringing the total number of CRA jobs to a low not seen since early 2016. We believe this is a short term issue and that we will see a recruitment drive once new budgets are in place.

CRA Vacancies Market – 29th February 2016

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 as the pharmaceutical jobs market in the UK moves incredibly fast.

  • Willey job network
  • Access Science jobs.

Our results showed that on these job boards a total of 758 CRA jobs were published in the last week:

  • 642 permanent roles
  • 116 contract roles

There has been another fluctuation in CRA jobs this week with a drop across both permanent and interim vacancies, totalling up to an overall 10% decline. This can largely be attributed to the tax year end looming making companies nervous about commencing recruitment. As a result we foresee jobs either hovering around current numbers or continuing to decline over the next three weeks.

Our results showed that on these job boards a total of 798 CRA jobs were published in the last week:

  • 637 permanent roles
  • 161 contract roles

There has been a small drop in the number of advertised CRA roles in the past 7 days which could just be due to a commercial decision by recruiters not to pay to advertise roles around school holidays. There is always a fluctuation in volumes during school breaks so we anticipate this being the case for the next 2 weeks.
