CRA Vacancy Update – 17th February 2014

Each week CK Clinical compose a tracker of what is happening in the Clinical Research Associate jobs market.  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 UK’s leading vacancy boards for how many CRA jobs have been advertised within the last 7 days.  Please bear in mind that 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.

So, our first summary was completed today (Monday Feb 10th) and relates to CRA vacancies posted on

  • New Scientist
  • Monster
  • CV library
  • Emedcareers
  • Pharmiweb
  • Willey job network
  • Access Science jobs

Our results showed that a total of 701 CRA were published last week (down on last weeks 884) with 612 being permanent roles (737 last week) and 89 as contract (147 previous week).

This is clearly showing that the market for permanent CRAs remains healthy at the moment and the demand for permanent staff over contract or interim CRAs marked.  We will continue to track this and try to identify if this is a trend that continues.
