CRA Vacancies Market – 22nd 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 22nd 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 850 CRA jobs were published in the last week:

  • 726 permanent roles
  • 124 contract roles

There has been a small increase in the volume of CRA jobs in the past week, contrary to the prediction we made previously. This implies that Clinical Research jobs are less affected by the school holidays, and that fluctuations may be more associated to the contract terms of job boards. Let see what next week brings!
