CRA Vacancies Market – 8th February 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 8th of February 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 822 CRA jobs were published in the last week:

  • 650 permanent roles
  • 172 contract roles

There has been a 19% increase in the volume of Clinical Research jobs posted in the last week. The greatest growth was in contract jobs which saw an uplift of 38%, against the increase in permanent vacancies which grew by 14%. Whilst contract jobs seem to be the most in demand, it is really positive to see that the number of roles for all contract types is growing.
