CRA Vacancy Market – 25th August 2014

Each week CK Clinical try 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.

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 25th of August 2014 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 665 CRA jobs were published in the last week, compared to 580 the week before. This is a 14% growth in the past 7 days, which is a much more buoyant environment for job hunters, with the split between temp and perm being:

  • 557 permanent roles (up from 490 – 13% increase)
  • 108 contract roles (up from 90 – which is a 16%increase)

With both permanent and temporary jobs are on the increase, this could be a sign that the summer dip is over and the CRA jobs market is bouncing back.
