Tell us a bit about yourself.
My name is Monika Vogt and I am from Switzerland. I have a background in Economics and Business Administration with a major in Human Resources Management, which I studied at the University of Applied Sciences in Olten, Switzerland. I have around 14 years of HR experience, of which I spent 10 years at Roche. Having joined Roche as a recruiter, I moved into an HR Business Partner role and later on worked as a talent scout. Since September 2015 I have been working as Head of PT (Pharma Global Technical Operations) Recruiting Basel & Kaiseraugst.
I have been working part time for family reasons and Roche has been very supportive, which I really appreciate. When not at work, I mostly spend time with my family. If I do have a moment to myself I enjoy reading short stories or novels.
In which Roche location are you currently working and what can you tell us about that location as a work environment?
I work in Basel. As I grew up only 30 km from here, it is the town I know best and of course I like it very much. The city may be small, but it has great cultural offerings, and from here you can easily travel to famous Swiss holiday destinations. There is a good public transport system - I commute by train and tram to the office. In terms of the work environment, Roche Basel seems huge and complex in the beginning, but still people seem to know each other and there are a lot of possibilities to get connected.
