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 1st September 2014 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 623 CRA jobs were published in the last week, compared to 665 the week before. This is a 6.32% decrease in the past 7 days, which is to be expected with just a four day week:
- 533 permanent roles
- 90 contract roles
Permanent jobs have only seen a small dip in numbers this week, as overall they have performed quite strongly throughout the summer months. The temporary market seems to have returned to where it has consistently been for the past 2 -3 months.
