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 of October 2015 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 953 CRA jobs were published in the last week:
- 822 permanent roles
- 131 contract roles
Having spent three weeks hitting vacancy numbers we have never seen before, this week we have seen a 42% drop – returning the figures below the 1000 mark again. Whilst this is still a relatively high number of clinical jobs (and above the years average of 870), is still a surprise following so many positive weeks.
