CRA Vacancy Market – 24th March 2014

Clinical Research Associate jobs market has seen its best week this year and remains consistently strong.  We are now the seventh week of tracking the CRA jobs market and CK Clinical are pleased to say that the market is at its strongest since we started recording the numbers of vacancies in early February.  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.

So, this weeks summary was completed today (Monday March 24th) and relates to CRA vacancies posted on:

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

Our results showed that from these job boards a total of 966 CRA jobs were published last week (up hugely on last weeks 638) with

  • 791 roles being permanent
  • 175 as contract

This has continued the trend we have seen for permanent CRAs remaining as much more in demand than for contract / interim CRAs  however this is huge bounce in the number fo contract roles being advertised.  We will continue to track this and try to identify if this is a trend that continues.  It is very encouraging to see such a strong increase in opportunities across the board but also ads to the general positive mood in the economic climate.

If you are interested in CK Clinical helping you find your next job as a CRA please search our vacancies.


If you would like CK Clinical to help you find your next CRA, then please get in touch.  


* 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.  (Please bear in mind that 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.)
