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 October 2016 relates to CRA vacancies posted on:
- New Scientist
- CV Library
- Willey job network
- Access Science jobs.
Our results showed that on these job boards a total of 644 CRA jobs were published in the last week:
- 562 permanent roles
- 82 contract roles
There has been a minor decline in the volume of clinical research jobs over the last seven days. This has seen permanent roles reduce by 1% and interim roles dropping by a more substantial 21%. However, considering we have been tracking a clear upward trend over the last 4 -5 weeks, we are anticipating this having a short term affect.
