CRA Vacancy Market – 31st March 2014

Clinical Research Associate jobs market has seen an other strong week and remains consistently strong.  We are now in  week eight 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.

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 31st March 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 942 CRA jobs were published last week with

  • 613 permanent roles
  • 329 contract

This has continued the trend we have seen for permanent CRAs remaining as much more in demand than for contract / interim CRAs  however the number of contract roles being advertised has recently taken a very large step up.  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.
