Our way of working

Are you a self starter? That is a quality that suits Roche. We are in the middle of a world in which developments are taking place at a rapid pace. In which quick solutions are requested, but also many barriers can be overcome. Do you think that's a challenge? At Roche, we took up that challenge with new energy a few years ago. In order to be able to respond more quickly to the demand for solutions in healthcare, we have abandoned the traditional way of working.

For a number of years we have been working according to agile principles, in which transparency, feedback and continuous learning play a major role. If you start at Roche, we will take you into our agile way of working from day one. You work together with your colleagues in short cycles on solutions and ideas. We support you as much as possible to tackle tasks yourself, feel and take responsibility for yourself. We encourage you to create internal and external networks that help you move your work forward. We give you the opportunity to make contacts and to seek partnerships in order to make smart use of the knowledge we have in our networks.


Our employees are the key to our success. They perform well and we appreciate this by creating a motivating environment for them and offering them numerous benefits.

Career Steps

We have deliberately chosen a flat organization. The great thing about this is that you yourself get many opportunities to take initiative and that there are few barriers to working with all kinds of colleagues. That gives you the space for a broad personal development. A career path that allows you to step up in the hierarchy is not necessarily there.  At Roche we appreciate your expertise and value for the organization. In this you can grow enormously during your career at Roche. We understand it might be harder without a clear path. We give you every support to shape this together with you. 

If you work at Roche, you work at an ambitious company. We therefore think it is only logical that you too are full of ambition. That you want to continuously develop your skills. At Roche, you can do that. You also get a responsibility in it. Together with you, we would like to explore what you would like and what you need for your personal and professional development. In this we encourage you to think ambitious. We do not have fixed, standard training budgets; we want to challenge you to think ambitious and come up with ideas. And we like to invest in developing ideas that are good for you and for Roche.


Do you choose Roche because we are an international company, with perhaps international opportunities for you? Very clever! Worldwide, we are active in more than 100 countries, with more than 100,000 employees in all kinds of roles. We work closely with other countries to develop new care and treatment solutions. We learn from each other and help each other. You can also make a valuable contribution to this. Within Roche there are many possibilities to work internationally. Consider, for example, temporary assignments of half a year in other Roche countries. We applaud it if you help to work on our Roche mission ‘doing now what patients need next!’ anywhere in the world.

The employer Roche

We set the bar high. After all, we have an important task for our patients: their health and quality of life comes first. We can only successfully tackle this task if we also take care of our own health. To the health of our employees.
