CRA Vacancies Market – 30th 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 30th 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 1004 of CRA jobs were published in the last week:

  • 849 permanent roles
  • 155 contract roles

Since we reported the low figures three weeks ago we have seen a steady increase in clinical research jobs. This can be seen across permanent and contract jobs with both growing by 30% since 16th November.  This is unusual behaviour for this time of year, but certainly supports the impressive progress the clinical research jobs market seems to have experienced throughout 2015.
