Roche profile

About Roche

We have been committed to improving lives since the company was founded in 1896 in Basel, Switzerland. Today, Roche is the world’s leading research-based healthcare company, providing innovative products to both the Pharmaceutical and Diagnostics industries. We are passionate about transforming patients’ lives and at Roche, we focus on developing innovative medicines and diagnostic tests that help patients live longer, better lives.

Our Diagnostics business provides the industry’s broadest range of diagnostics and monitoring products and services, spanning all sectors of the market: from small hand held devices used directly by patients or healthcare professionals, to large diagnostic instruments found in hospital laboratories.

Diagnostics is set to play an increasingly important role in the future of healthcare as genetic knowledge presents new and exciting opportunities. Our desire is to provide clinicians and patients with Actionable Health Information - information that reduces the uncertainty in the medical decision making process, enabling them to choose between available alternatives to prevent or treat disease.

Our spacious and open plan head office at Burgess Hill offers a modern and pleasant working environment with a light-filled atrium at its heart. Facilities include a fully equipped gym and dance studio offering a range of on-site classes; together with a subsidised restaurant providing excellent choices of freshly prepared, healthy meals and a coffee bar with a range of barrista coffees.

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 foster a culture of reward and recognition supported by a competitive remuneration package directly linked to individual and business performance. 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.

If you want to work for a company that makes a difference to people’s lives all over the world, consider Roche Diagnostics.
