CRA Vacancies Market – 7th of December 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 7th of December 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 917 of CRA jobs were published in the last week:

  • 806 permanent roles
  • 111 contract roles

This week there has been a decline in the volume of clinical jobs in the field of Clinical Research Associate. It has only fallen by 8% overall with numbers having fallen across both permanent and contract roles. However this is to be expected at this time of the year and we should expect figures to drop a bit more before we get to the end of 2015.
