CRA Vacancies Market – 18th April 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 18th of April 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 683 CRA jobs were published in the last week:

  • 578 permanent roles
  • 105 contract roles

Over the last 3 weeks we have tracked a gradually declining volume of CRA jobs which we presumed was a direct result of the Easter holidays and the changing tax year. However, we are pleased to see that this trend has not continued and this week clinical research jobs have grown by 68% instead. This increase reflects other improvements we have seen across the CK recruitment divisions, implying a good year for job seekers.
