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 4th October 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 674 CRA jobs were published in the last week:
- 570 permanent roles
- 104 contract roles
The volume of clinical research jobs has continued to grow over the last seven days with another six jobs added into our tracked job boards. However, there has been some fluctuation between permanent and interim positions, with permanent seeing a small decline in jobs whereas interim roles have grown by 13%. Overall, the trend we are tracking is a positive one with job numbers increasing week on week, hopefully we will continuing monitoring this behaviour over the coming weeks.
