CRA Vacancies Market – 11th January 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 11th of January 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 784 CRA jobs were published in the last week:

  • 642 permanent roles
  • 142 contract roles

Last year saw the volume of Clinical Research jobs grow tremendously, and 2016 already looks to be following the same path. From last week there has been a 60% growth in advertised roles. Predominantly reflected in the volume of permanent roles which have seen a surge of 63%, however interim roles are also performing well and have seen a healthy increase of 46% in the past week.
