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 12th July 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 614 CRA jobs were published in the last week:
- 551 permanent roles
- 63 contract roles
The referendum results have had quite a significant impact on the economic and political environment within the UK. We had also predicted some degree of fluctuation within recruitment due to the feeling of uncertainty within the corporate world. As such CRA jobs have continued to decline in volume, with interim roles reducing by 43% in the last three weeks. Unexpectedly, permanent roles have grown this week, only by a small percentage but let’s hope that’s a positive sign.
