The Clinical Research Associate jobs market has returned to strength now that the Easter Holiday season has passed.
Each week CK Clinical try to give you a picture of the state of the CRA jobs market. 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.
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. This weeks summary is for week commencing 12th May 2014 and relates to CRA vacancies posted on:
- New Scientist
- CV Library
- Willey job network
- Access Science jobs
Our results showed that from these job boards a total of 806 CRA jobs were published last week (which is exactly 100 up on last week) with:
- 634 permanent roles (vs 579 last week)
- 172 contract roles (vs 127 last week)
This is an encouraging sign that the contract market is looking up and that the permanent opportunities continue to show a strong demand for CRAs.
