CRA Vacancies Market – 7th March 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 of March 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 724 CRA jobs were published in the last week:

  • 602 permanent roles
  • 122 contract roles

Permanent CRA jobs have continued to drop during the last week with a further decline of 40 jobs across the 7 job boards we track. Temporary jobs have grown slightly, from 116 last week to 122 this week. The behaviour of the recruitment market supports our prediction that the upcoming tax year may be affecting recruitment.
