We make a difference in people’s lives

If you want to work for a company that makes a difference in people’s lives all over the world, consider Roche. Our work in preventing, diagnosing and treating a range of health disorders through innovative products and services enhances both people’s health and quality of life. We focus on disease areas where the medical needs are greatest – such as oncology, infectious disease, cardiology and women’s health.


We’re an innovative world leader offering long term stability

Roche is the world’s largest biotech company, with truly differentiated medicines in oncology, immunology, infectious diseases, ophthalmology and neuroscience. Roche is also the world leader in in-vitro diagnostics and tissue-based cancer diagnostics and leads the way in diabetes management.

Personalised Healthcare – where a patient is matched with the best treatment based on their specific biological markers – is at the core of our business strategy.  By focusing on both Pharmaceuticals and Diagnostics, Roche is in a unique position to realise this vision and drive innovation for the benefit of patients.


We’re open to debate and new ideas

At Roche, innovation is key to the success of our business. Our products push the boundaries and we encourage our employees to do the same. We work together across functions, businesses and the world with a strong sense of purpose. We foster a culture of collaboration, respect and empowerment where ideas can flourish. Our collaborative, inclusive culture embraces diversity and encourages employees to have a voice and shape the organisation. We promote an environment where employees understand the value of mutual respect and where respectful challenge is encouraged.


We offer you the chance to develop and realise your potential

Being part of a large, global organisation there are plenty of opportunities to develop your career. We work hard to understand the individual career aspirations of our employees and although you will be encouraged to take ownership of your career and influence your own development, Roche will support you all the way.

We offer a comprehensive portfolio of both local and global leadership, management and skills development programmes. There are taster days enabling employees to experience different roles in the organisation as well as mentoring programmes. This is underpinned by career development workshops which are designed to get you thinking and plan your next steps.


We take care of you

We foster a culture of reward and recognition supported by a competitive remuneration package directly linked to individual and business performance.  There is also the opportunity to share in the success of our business via our annual bonus scheme as well as the employee share plan. We offer a flexible benefits programme that gives employees a choice of benefits such as:

  • Payment of Superannuation account fees if you join the Roche Superfund
  • Payment of Salary Continuance insurance if you salary sacrifice 5% to the Roche Super Fund in addition to the employer contribution
  • Ability to participate in the employee share scheme at a discounted rate
  • Corporate discount on Private Health Insurance
  • Corporate Car benefits programs
  • Free Antivirus software for your home computers
  • Access online books to develop your skills and knowledge
  • And more

We care about what makes working at Roche a rewarding experience for our employees and we understand that many things matter: health and wellbeing, receiving support to develop your career, having the tools to do your job and being recognised when you do it well.

We have established a wellbeing program for our employees, which includes influenza vaccinations, an employee counselling service, Private Insurance Corporate Healthcare rates, ergonomic desk assessments, fruit in the offices and other initiatives through the year. We also acknowledge that it is not always easy to balance work and personal commitments which is why we have flexible work arrangement options for employees to help balance those competing commitments.
