Each week CK Clinical tries to give you a picture of the state of the CRA jobs market in the UK. 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 13th of July 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 745 CRA jobs were published in the last week, compared to 838 the week before with:
- 655 permanent roles
- 90 contract roles
There has been a further 11% decline in the volume of Clinical Research jobs advertised in the past week, totalling to a 20% reduction in the past two weeks. With temporary jobs having frozen at the same number for the past couple of weeks, the majority of the decline is within permanent jobs. These are the lowest figures we have seen since March!
