CRA Vacancies Market – 25th January 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 25th of January 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 710 CRA jobs were published in the last week:

  • 562 permanent roles
  • 148 contract roles

Following the growth we saw during 2015, 2016 seems to be going in the same direction with a 45% growth in the total number of advertised CRA jobs since the start of the year. That’s over 50 jobs per week, which is the equivalent of 7 new roles. These volumes are a clear sign that investment in clinical research/trials will continue over the next few years.
