CRA Vacancies Market – 29th February 2016

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 29th of February 2016 relates to CRA vacancies posted on:

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

Our results showed that on these job boards a total of 758 CRA jobs were published in the last week:

  • 642 permanent roles
  • 116 contract roles

There has been another fluctuation in CRA jobs this week with a drop across both permanent and interim vacancies, totalling up to an overall 10% decline. This can largely be attributed to the tax year end looming making companies nervous about commencing recruitment. As a result we foresee jobs either hovering around current numbers or continuing to decline over the next three weeks.
