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 3rd of August 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 1012 CRA jobs were published in the last week, compared to 996 the week before with:
- 861 permanent roles
- 151 contract roles
Having fallen to 745 jobs just 4 weeks ago, the volume of advertised CRA jobs has bounced back and grown by an impressive 35%. Although the change in permanent and temporary jobs is unexpected – its unusual to see permanent jobs fall by 26 jobs and contract increase by 42. However this is great news about the growth!
