CRA Vacancies Market – 16th of November 2015

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 16th of November 2015 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 763 of CRA jobs were published in the last week:

  • 645 permanent roles
  • 118 contract roles

There has been an 18% decline in the number of CRA jobs since last week, which is disappointing after 3 weeks of stability. This decline has impacted permanent roles predominantly, which has seen a drop in jobs by 20% whereas contract roles have only seen a 4% difference. Whether this is a sign of the upcoming season will become apparent in the next few weeks.
