CRA Vacancies Market – 21st March 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 21th of March 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 750 CRA jobs were published in the last week:

  • 614 permanent roles
  • 136 contract roles

CRA jobs have grown over the last week, with permanent roles growing by 12% and contract by 25%. With just 10 working days until the start of the new tax year, we foresee the growth in jobs attributable to companies trying to get a head start on their recruitment for 2016/17. We hope to see the CRA jobs market continue to grow from hereon in.
