Your clinical research recruitment questions, answered

What should employers include in their job descriptions for clinical research roles?

The technical skills and qualifications required for clinical research roles should be clearly highlighted in the job description. By also highlighting the soft skills that will enable candidates to perform well in clinical research roles, businesses will have a better chance of attracting the right candidates.

How can employers compare their salaries offered for clinical research roles against the rest of the market?

It is important for companies to be aware of salary trends within the clinical research area, especially as research shows that 43% of employees are dissatisfied with their current salary. Within higher demand areas like clinical research, employers can use resources such as the Salary and Recruiting Trends Guide for 2022 to cross-check their salaries against the rest of the market.

How can employers upskill clinical research professionals within their organisations?

Employers can upskill clinical research professionals within their organisations through the introduction of training tools and programmes. With learning and development platforms, like Hays Thrive, companies can tailor training programmes to fit their business needs.

Is it better to look for temporary or permanent clinical research staff?

Whether a company should search for temporary or permanent clinical research staff depends on the individual organisation, department workload and the nature of the projects. Temporary staff can be used during busy periods and on projects with a clear end date, whereas the recruitment of permanent clinical research employees would be more appropriate for roles consisting of longer, ongoing clinical research projects. 

How can organisations improve the retention of clinical research staff?

It is essential that companies offer their clinical research staff a competitive salary, positive work-life balance, training support and job security in order to attract and retain talent. With 75% of employers stating that they have experienced difficulties in hiring permanent staff in the last year, there has never been a more critical time for businesses to focus on retaining their existing clinical research staff.
