Each week CK Clinical tries to give you a picture of the state of the CRA jobs market in the UK. 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 9th of June 2015 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 CRA jobswere published in the last week, compared to 824 the week before with:
- 703 permanent roles
- 121 contract roles
Last week there was a small decline following the record high in the number of CRA jobs posted a few weeks ago, however this week shows a small rise in CRA jobs particularly contract roles but has not managed to reach the success of a few weeks ago. This fluctuation is very normal with such a high volume of jobs but 2015 is still proving to be a really good year for CRA’s!
