CRA Vacancies Market – 1st 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 1st 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 690 CRA jobs were published in the last week:

  • 566 permanent roles
  • 124 contract roles

There has been a small decline in the number of clinical research jobs being advertised in the past 7 days. The reduction in jobs has impacted interim roles where there has been a fall of 24 jobs. However the interim market is incredibly fast paced so we anticipate a quick recovery.
