About Roche UK

We're here to deliver better outcomes to more patients, faster.

Roche is a pioneer in healthcare, focused on advancing science to improve people's lives. In the UK we employ over 2,000 people who work hard every day to bring our medicines to people who urgently need them. We work from bench to bedside - researching new medicines, running global clinical trials, and collaborating with the NHS to try to ensure rapid uptake and delivery of our products and services. 

A key driver to our success is ensuring that stakeholders have an accurate understanding of who we are, what we do, and how we help people in the UK live longer and healthier lives. We help build greater partnerships and advocacy that enable us to achieve our goal of ensuring that UK patients have the best access to medicines in Europe.

Applying a deep understanding of the latest developments in the UK healthcare environment, you will develop strategies that directly engage with key stakeholder groups and develop pan-industry relationships that can support these efforts. 

Mindset and behaviour is as important to us as experience and capabilities.

We won't tell you how to behave with detailed competency frameworks; we ask you to bring your differences so we can celebrate a more diverse and inclusive workforce. 

We offer a starting point for you to consider and to reflect on what this might mean for you: we're building a culture that is centered around growth mindset, prioritisation, ownership and accountability.  We need individuals who are courageously authentic in their thinking and in their actions.  This is what excites us about our future. 

We believe that on-going personal transformation is the heart of on-going organisational transformation and that fundamental to this is knowing yourself. 

For us, knowing yourself means being aware of your own strengths and weaknesses, your passions and fears, your desires and dreams, your thoughts and feelings, your likes and dislikes, your tolerance and limitations. Knowing yourself requires you to: regularly stop, pause and reflect as you change and develop over time, invite and share feedback regularly and know where to focus your development, know when to hold things lightly and what to let go of. Knowing yourself means knowing your purpose and what fulfills you, it enables you to be authentic and truly bring your whole self to work.
