CRA Vacancy Market – 5th of August 2014

The Clinical Research Associate jobs market has seen a significant increase in contract opportunities this 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 weeks summary for week commencing the 5th 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 655 CRA jobs were published last week (compared to 748 last week) which is slightly lower than the last 2 weeks and lower on the year overall:

  • 544 permanent roles
  • 111 contract  roles

Contract roles have risen significantly this week after being quite low over the last few weeks and permanent roles have dropped considerably in comparison to past weeks which accounts for the total drop in jobs overall.
