CRA Vacancy Market – 20th of January 2015

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 19th of January 2015 relates to CRA vacancies posted on:

  • New Scientist
  • Monster
  • CV Library
  • Emedcareers
  • Pharmiweb
  • Willey job network
  • Access Science jobs.

Our results showed that on these job boards a total of 470 CRA jobs were published in the last week, compared to 433 the week before with:

  • 419 permanent roles 
  • 51 contract roles 

Over the Christmas holidays and the start of the New Year we saw a drop in roles which is only to be expected but as the the month of January progresses we are staring to see a steady rise in the amount of CRA vacancies. Hopefully this will keep on rising as the year progresses.
