CRA Vacancies Market – 19th October 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 19th of October 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 of 1004 CRA jobs were published in the last week:

  • 862 permanent roles
  • 142 contract roles

After a dip last week, clinical research jobs picked up again over the last seven days and are back over the 1000-mark. Whilst this is only a 5% increase, it still reflects the growing demand for Clinical Research Associates we have been seeing over the last 5-6 weeks. We have been examining the cause of this and we been releasing the results in a report in the next few days – so keep an eye on the CK Clinical website.
