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 23rd of March 2015 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 923 CRA jobs were published in the last week, compared to 780 the week before with:
- 822 permanent roles
- 101 contract roles
Following last weeks drop, and maintaining the pattern we have noticed, this week we have seen an 18% increase in CRA jobs, with a huge 23% increase in contract jobs alone. This also brings the volume of clinical jobs within the clinical research field to an all time high in 2015.
