Roche Products Ltd

Roche is a global pioneer in pharmaceuticals and diagnostics. Our aim is to detect illnesses – such as cancer, infectious and cardiovascular disease – early, and treat them with life-saving and life-changing medicines.

Employer Overview

Founded in 1896, Roche continues to search for better ways to prevent, diagnose and treat diseases and make a sustainable contribution to society. We have one mission: to do now what patients need next.

Twenty nine medicines developed by Roche are included in the World Health Organisation Model Lists of Essential Medicines, among them life-saving antibiotics, anti-malarials and cancer medicines.

Roche has been recognised as the Group Leader in sustainability within the Pharmaceuticals, Biotechnology & Life Sciences Industry for eight years in a row by the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI).

We have had a presence in the UK since 1908, operating across three main businesses:

  • Our pharmaceutical business in the UK is one of our most important global centres for researching and developing novel medicines, as well as marketing these medicines once they have been developed.
  • We lead the UK in providing a broad and cutting-edge portfolio of tests and technology to prevent, diagnose and manage diseases.
  • We provide diabetes management solutions and services to improve the lives of people living with diabetes.

We’ll commit to your success…

We’ll provide all the support you need to further your career here in ways you might have never considered. Best of all you are going to work with some of the most inspiring and friendliest people you could hope to meet.

Because “doing now what patients need next” is at the heart of everything we do.

Work experience, apprenticeship and graduate programmes

Why Roche - Our programs in the UK are split between Burgess Hill and Welwyn Garden City, and are designed to give those with no or little work experience the opportunity to work and begin their career journey. 

These opportunities enable you to develop and learn about yourself whilst adding real value to our organisation. As part of a diverse and inclusive organisation your efforts will only enhance our goal to “do now what patients need next”, and we will encourage you to be involved.

Apprenticeships - Our Apprenticeship Programs are for school leavers and or Degree students who want to train in an subject area that will give them a qualification at the end of the program.

Undergraduate - If you are currently studying and want hands on work experience over the summer or as a year in industrial placement.

Post Graduate - Our Graduate and Postgraduate opportunities are for those who have recently graduated from their degrees (Batchelors, Masters, PhD), and want to take their first into work. We also offer research and project based opportunities for those wanting to continue research such as Postdoctoral Fellowships or collaborate on projects (including final year projects).

Work Experience - Unpaid, 1 week maximum - for any Early Career talent that want to understand or know more about Roche and its potential opportunities.

This initiative aims to:

(1) Provide insight into Roche and give an overview of our business areas

(2) Provide hands-on experience and insight into key soft skills needed for the the workplace

(3) Provide insight into personal preferences, strengths and development areas
