We are currently seeking to recruit exceptional Graduates to join our successful 2-year programme based in our award winning offices in Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire, UK.

There are a total of four Graduate Trainee opportunities within the Product Development Regulatory Group: two in Program Management, one in Regulatory Documentation and one in Regulatory Labelling. You'll be considered for all three areas, but if you have a preference please indicate in your cover letter which area and why.

For all roles, the Graduate Programme is a 2-year program that offers you the opportunity to get hands on work experience including assignments to your own discrete tasks and responsibilities. You will gain insight into the work of Regulatory professionals who are responsible for providing the Regulatory input and leadership throughout the lifecycle of the product, from initial first-in-man studies all the way to the point at which the product lifecycle comes to an end.

The projects you will work on are real and you will be generating genuine added value.

To broaden your experience across the development value chain you will also have the opportunity to go for a 6-month rotation in another Product Development function.

  • Regulatory Program Management

You will be providing support to Regulatory Leaders and Regulatory Managers responsible for the EU and Rest of World area by working on various activities across the whole development value chain from clinical trial applications through to license applications and maintenance.
  • Regulatory Documentation

You will be working with global drug development teams to bring novel pharmaceutical products to patients worldwide through planning and preparing a broad range of regulatory documents, developing your scientific writing skills and knowledge of regulations. You will have the opportunity to work on many document types, different therapy areas and all stages of product development.
  • Regulatory Labelling

You will be developing and writing the company Core Data Sheet (CDS) which is the position for Roche Pharmaceutical products and local labels. The role involves working in partnership with Regulatory Program Management and cross functional experts located globally, ensuring scientific data and safety information is provided to all patients.


You have at least a BSc in life or pharmaceutical sciences, or a similar scientific qualification.

Strong teamwork is one of your strengths, and you are able to work under pressure and to deadlines. As we are working in a very dynamic environment, you are expected to demonstrate flexibility, good organisational skills and strong written and verbal communication. Furthermore you are someone who learns quickly and who has very good English language skills.

You're someone who wants to influence your own development. You're looking for a company where you have the opportunity to pursue your interests across functions and geographies. Where a job title is not considered the final definition of who you are, but the starting point.
