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 27th of July 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 996 CRA jobs were published in the last week, compared to 881 the week before with:
- 887 permanent roles
- 109 contract roles
CRA jobs have continued to climb back towards their normal numbers this week, with a further growth of 13% taking it to a 33% increase in the past two weeks. This should assure job seekers that the clinical research jobs market remains buoyant but has a habit of fluctuating every few weeks.
