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 2nd August 2016 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 583 CRA jobs were published in the last week:
- 514 permanent roles
- 69 contract roles
Clinical research jobs continued to fluctuate this week with a small 7% decline in jobs, which saw permanent jobs fall by the same percent, whereas interim roles dropped by more than 20%. After 2015’s been a huge recruitment year for the clinical research sector, it’s disappointing that it has been such an inconsistent year for recruitment.
