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 20th September 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 635 CRA jobs were published in the last week:
- 537 permanent roles
- 98 contract roles
Following last week’s small dip in numbers we are pleased to see numbers returning to their previous levels. In addition, interim roles have grown to the highest they have been since mid-June this year. This is a positive sign for clinical recruitment, and hopefully will continue throughout the rest of the year.
