Working at Roche

Be at the forefront of innovation. The next step is yours. Globally, Roche is a force of over 90,000 people working towards one goal: to solve some of the greatest challenges for humanity using science and technology. In Australia, we have more than 600 passionate employees working across our three businesses – Roche Pharmaceuticals, Roche Diagnostics and Roche Diabetes Care. Every day, our work impacts the lives of millions of patients across the country.

We strive to attract and retain the very best talent in the industry. This commitment stems from our belief that our people are the key to bringing our medicines and diagnostics to patients in the most effective way. Our people make our business. Our people research, develop and commercialise our products – products which diagnose, manage and treat some of the world’s most serious diseases – ensuring that our medicines ultimately reach the patients who need them.

For this reason, we’ve created a supportive work environment where people can be truly invested in their work. Roche encourages big thinking and provides employees with the support, flexibility, training and development opportunities they need to make their mark.

Working for Roche means more than just having a job. To us, it means a daily obligation to maintain our personal integrity, think boldly and be passionately committed to improving lives. We aspire to embody these values in everything we do.

Integrity starts with being honest with yourself and understanding your own strengths and weaknesses. It is also about interacting with others in an open, genuine way.

Our business and strategy takes us often into uncharted territory. So we must have the courage to take appropriate risks in order to succeed. We should be entrepreneurial and prepared to try new ways of doing things.

Above all, it is our passion to improve patients’ lives that is our ultimate driver. It is this passion that fuels our determination and enables us to persevere, often over many years. We use our drive and commitment to energise, engage and inspire others.

At Roche, we aim to embrace the diversity of differences of all our people. We strive to be inclusive and encourage the richness of ideas, experiences and styles that our diversity brings. 

All facets of diversity are important to us (including gender, age, ability, race, cultural background, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity and religion) and we endeavour to create an environment where every individual can contribute and realise their potential. 

It is our goal to ensure each employee feels safe, valued and respected. We believe diversity goes beyond visible differences to include different educational backgrounds, professional knowledge, personality types, thinking styles and life experiences. By embracing diversity and striving for inclusion, we can enrich every discussion and decision at Roche, bring our purpose to life and create a sense of safety and belonging for employees. 

Staying successful as a company in the future requires that all employees continuously learn, grow and contribute - it is an expectation of working at Roche.

We believe that all employees have potential and their selected development path will reflect their current career aspirations and capabilities.

Our seven Leadership Commitments set clear expectations for all our people leaders at Roche, and represent our leadership promise to our employees. Regardless of work area or level, we expect every leader at Roche to demonstrate these commitments day in and day out.
