North America sees hiring increase in digital media clinical trial roles

Some parts of the world are investing more heavily in digital media roles than others.

By Data Journalism Team

North America extended its dominance for digital media hiring among clinical trial operations industry companies in the three months ending March.

The number of roles in North America made up 49.6% of total digital media jobs – up from 48.7% in the same quarter last year.

That was followed by Europe, which saw a 0.6 year-on-year percentage point change in digital media roles.

The figures are compiled by GlobalData, who track the number of new job postings from key companies in various sectors over time. Using textual analysis, these job advertisements are then classified thematically.

GlobalData's thematic approach to sector activity seeks to group key company information by topic to see which companies are best placed to weather the disruptions coming to their industries.

These key themes, which include digital media, are chosen to cover "any issue that keeps a CEO awake at night".

By tracking them across job advertisements it allows us to see which companies are leading the way on specific issues and which are dragging their heels - and importantly where the market is expanding and contracting.

Which countries are seeing the most growth for digital media job ads in the clinical trial operations industry?

The fastest growing country was Canada, which saw 2.9% of all digital media job adverts in the three months ending March 2021, increasing to 4.4% in the three months ending March this year.

The top country for digital media roles in the clinical trial operations industry is the United States which saw 45.2% of all roles advertised in the three months ending March.

Which cities are the biggest hubs for digital media workers in the clinical trial operations industry?
