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 19th July 2016 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 633 CRA jobs were published in the last week:
- 545 permanent roles
- 88 contract roles
There have been some good developments with clinical jobs this week, with a 3% increase in the total volume of advertised roles. Furthermore interim roles have grown by 39% which is a great sign after a few weeks of waning numbers. Permanent roles have not fared as well, but fortunately the rate of decline has slowed considerable, with only 1% fewer roles available. We hope that this is a sign that clinical recruitment is making a turn for the best.
