CRA Vacancies Market – 21st September 2015

Each week CK Clinical tries to give you a picture of the state of the CRA jobs market in the UK. 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 21st of September 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 1734 CRA jobs were published in the last week:

  • 1570 permanent roles
  • 164 contract roles

This is the highest number we have seen in CRA jobs in the 18 months we have been tracking them. Permanent CRA’s seem to be in huge demand so if you are a CRA looking for a new job now is definitely the time to do it
