Each week CK Clinical tries 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 as the pharmaceutical jobs market in the UK moves incredibly fast.
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 8th December 2014 relates to CRA vacancies posted on:
- New Scientist
- CV Library
- Willey job network
- Access Science jobs.
Our results showed that on these job boards a total of 527 CRA jobs were published in the last week, compared to 581 the week before with:
- 472 permanent roles
- 55 contract roles
The CRA jobs market continues to drop this week with a further 54 fewer jobs out there for clinical job seekers. With Christmas exactly two weeks today it’s not unexpected to see jobs falling.
