Clinical Research

The shortage of qualified Clinical Research Associates to monitor studies of investigational drugs is having a significant impact on the pharmaceutical industry across Europe and worldwide. Even though these days sponsors mainly choose to outsource the CRA role to Clinical Research Organisations (CROs), the gap between demand and supply is still widening and inevitably driving higher costs and extending drug development timelines.

Today’s Challenges

When recruiting for CRA roles, typically pharma and CRO companies require CRA II or Senior CRA level experience, that is a minimum of two to four years of monitoring experience. Often this comes with a request for expertise in specific therapeutic areas, which narrows the pool of candidates even further. We also expect an increased demand for services in the areas of orphan and rare diseases as sponsors look for specialist therapeutic knowledge and site relationships to recruit patients faster.


We recruit for a wide variety of clinical research and clinical drug development vacancies with leading pharmaceutical companies and contract research organisations.
