CRA Vacancies Market – 23rd of November 2015

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 November 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 864 of CRA jobs were published in the last week:

  • 752 permanent roles
  • 142 contract roles

There has been a 13% increase in CRA jobs this week, with both permanent and contract roles benefiting from this increase.  Contract jobs do seem to be increasing week on week, and have grown the most over the past week. Based on the time of year, we would suggest that is a move towards contract workers covering the Christmas period.
