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 August 2016 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 569 CRA jobs were published in the last week:
- 505 permanent roles
- 64 contract roles
There has been a continued decline in jobs this week with 14 fewer jobs advertised on the job boards. This is a smaller drop than the previous week, but implies that there are still some ongoing concerns regarding the UK’s future which is delaying in the recruitment plans for many organisations. This coupled with the normal summer season could create some unsettled figures over the coming weeks.
