CRA Vacancies Market – 7th June 2016

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 7th June 2016 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 of 680 CRA jobs were published in the last week:

  • 574 permanent roles
  • 106 contract roles

There has been a 3% decline in the total number of clinical jobs being advertised in the last week. This drop has impacted both permanent and contract roles, with contract roles seeing the largest decrease. This contradicts the behaviours we have seen in the other CK divisions which have followed a trend of decreasing permanent roles and increasing demand for contractors. We have assumed this has been related to the upcoming referendum, but it doesn’t seem like CRA positions are less affected by government decisions.
