CRA Vacancy Update – 3rd March 2014

Now in its second month, CK Clinical are pleased to introduce more information about 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 UKs 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, this weeks summary was completed on Monday March 3rd and relates to CRA vacancies posted on:

  • New Scientist
  • Monster
  • CV Library
  • Emedcareers
  • Pharmiweb
  • Willey job network
  • AccessScience jobs

Our results showed that from these job boards a total of 636 CRA jobs were published last week (up on last weeks 532 but down on this years earlier high of 884) with:

  • 531 being permanent roles (up from 494 from last week)
  • 105 as contract (up from 38 from last week).

This has continued the trend we have seen for permanent CRAs remaining as much more in demand than for contract / interim CRAs.  We will continue to track this and try to identify if this is a trend that continues.  It is very encouraging to see a marked increase in contract opportunities this week.
