Clinical Research Academy (CRAcademy) has continued to find top candidates for Clinical Research Associate (CRA) posts by running a series of Selection and Assessment Days in the UK. The success of the first event led to a second in November 2005 where clients from the Pharmaceutical and Clinical Research industry joined the panel at interview.

The 23 candidates were chosen from over 70 applicants who expressed a desire to become Clinical Research Associates. The goal of the day was to identify, assess and select the most outstanding individuals for CRAcademy.

The structure of the day included a new exercise for the potential candidates; this involved testing their ability to negotiate with their peers. The assessment was based on the competencies which are inherent to a CRA. We were looking for candidates who showed good communication skills, were detail orientated, persuasive and passionate about joining the industry.

 “It was great to see the level of commitment shown by the candidates on the day. The CRAcademy innovative selection days are a great way to observe and identify the skills, competencies and individuals of those how will fit a Clinical Research Associate role in the UK. “
Alan Sargeant – Clinical Research Manager, Servier Laboratories.

The candidates came from a variety of backgrounds including business development, scientific research, sales, nursing and other clinically-related positions. Those selected will be able to meet a range of client needs once they have completed the intense development process. Since the initial  Selection Day we have placed a number trainee graduates with client partners. If you have yet to sign up for the traineeship scheme there is still the opportunity to do so.

The second Selection Day was a resounding success and now CRAcademy plans to repeat the approach across Europe and conduct further Selection Days in the UK throughout 2006.
