CRA Vacancy Market – 2nd June 2014

The Clinical Research Associate jobs market fluctuates with contract roles remaining steady and permanent vacancies dropping.

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.

This weeks summary is for week commencing 2nd June 2014 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 653 CRA jobs were published last week (which is a significant drop from last weeks 949) with:

  • 506 roles permanent roes (vs 791 last week)
  • 147 contract roles (vs 175 last week).

This shows an interesting turn of events to see that the CRA market for temporary and contract staff has remained reasonably consistent for the last few months but the permanent market fluctuating more.
