CRA Vacancy Market – 7th April 2014

Clinical Research Associate jobs market has seen an other strong week and remains consistently strong.  We are now in our 3rd month of tracking the CRA jobs market and CK Clinical are pleased to say that the market remains strong although has taken a bit of a tumble this week.  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 7th April 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 745 CRA jobs were published last week (nearly 200 down on last week however this is likely to be because of the Easter holidays) with

  • 645 roles  permanent jobs (up on last weeks figure)
  • 100  contract jobs

This has continued the trend we have seen for strong demand for permanent CRAs which dispute the dramatic reduction in overall vacancies advertised has remained consistent.  The demand than for contract / interim CRAs is the area that significantly dropped off again this week.  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.
