CRA Vacancy Market – 14th April 2014

Clinical Research Associate jobs market has seen an other strong week and remains consistently strong.  We are now midway through our 3rd month of tracking the CRA jobs market and CK Clinical are seeing a slight dip in the number of roles being advertised.

Over time, we aim to give you a picture of how this CRA vacancy market changes and evolves and most importantly how this may impact on you.  So 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 14th April and relates to CRA vacancies posted on:

  • New Scientist
  • Monster
  • CV library
  • Emedcareers
  • Pharmiweb
  • Willey job network
  • Access ScienceJobs

Our results showed that from these job boards a total of 673 CRA jobs were published last week (which is nearly 300 down on 2 weeks ago but is likely affected by the Easter break) with:

  • 586 permanent roles
  • 87 as contract roles

A consistent trend we have seen throughout the time of recording these trends has been a strong demand for permanent CRAs.  The demand for contract / interim CRAs has remained consistently lower than.  We will continue to track this and try to identify if this is a trend that continues.
