Working at Roche
If you are determined to make a difference, Roche is the place for you. By challenging conventional thinking – and challenging ourselves – we have become one of the world’s leading research-focused healthcare groups. You’ll be inspired by being part of a worldwide community of people who have committed themselves to improving lives.
Be part of a winning company
Over the years, we have made our mark by setting market trends, sometimes even creating new markets, and developing state-of-the-art technology. Our product range includes a number of medical breakthroughs, such as five cancer drugs (Herceptin, Avastin, MabThera, Xeloda and Tarceva) which have proven to increase average survival rates. By joining Roche, you can be part of the next big innovation – not only in the field of cancer but also for HIV, hepatitis, and many of the unsolved challenges in modern medicine.
As you create cutting-edge healthcare solutions, you will learn and work alongside the best: Our Diagnostics Division is the world leader in in-vitro diagnostics; our Pharmaceuticals Division is number one in the hospital pharmacy market. As examples of our accomplishments, see our most recent awards.
Thrive on our performance culture
Our success is owed to a performance culture based on collaboration, debate and mutual respect. Addressing the challenges we face takes enthusiastic and talented people, individuals who are willing to apply professional curiosity – and the occasional unconventional method or idea – to promote progress.
And your commitment will be adequately rewarded. Our salary packages have been designed to match our individual business locations, always making sure that our “appreciation” of your efforts comfortably meets local financial demands. We also believe it will reinforce our performance culture if our people share in the success of the company. That’s why we have set up Roche Connect, a plan that enables employees to purchase shares at a 20% discount. It is currently available in 41 countries.
Enjoy our inspiring work environment
From your first day on the job, you’ll find yourself welcomed into a dynamic and stimulating workplace, where you have the opportunity to work on exciting global projects. At the same time, we make sure you can attend to your personal goals, family obligations and professional development in equal measure. Roche has a variety of site-specific plans and programmes offering flexible working-time models, sports and recreation offers, and much more.
Mutual trust and respect are core values at Roche. We strongly believe in the merits of diversity and foster an open-minded culture in which each individual’s point of view is respected. We want everyone to be open to discussing new ideas – including from career starters bringing fresh perspectives to the table. Through our "Ideas Management" intranet site, you’ll be invited to give feedback on how to improve day-to-day working conditions and procedures. If you are out to learn from others and build a strong professional foundation, you’ll feel you have found your professional home. So come and make your mark!
