CRA Vacancies Market – 15th February 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 15th of February 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 798 CRA jobs were published in the last week:

  • 637 permanent roles
  • 161 contract roles

There has been a small drop in the number of advertised CRA roles in the past 7 days which could just be due to a commercial decision by recruiters not to pay to advertise roles around school holidays. There is always a fluctuation in volumes during school breaks so we anticipate this being the case for the next 2 weeks.
