About Roche UK

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

That means the world to us.

Our achievements help to transform the lives of millions of people. We’ve been supporting patients for over 100 years in the UK, building a reputation that we’re intensely proud of. Through this success, we’ve set an incredibly high standard. Those expectations continue to grow. The environment in which we operate changes at an ever-increasing pace. The industry is never going to stand still.

As one united team at Roche UK, we know we need to boldly respond to these changes whilst keeping our customers and our patients at the heart of everything we do.

So, we’re shooting for the stars, transforming ourselves into a much more open, dynamic, transparent, inclusive, collaborative and agile business.

Our Commitments

“Better outcomes to more patients, faster.”

  • Healthcare partners are ‘wowed’ when they work with us
  • Our innovations are faster and bolder 
  • We provide services and products to better serve people
  • Purpose is our primary motivator
  • We spend our time contributing where it adds the most value

… we ensure brilliance across the organisation

… we can feel brave, innovate and take calculated risks within legal and ethical boundaries...not fearing consequences if things “go wrong”

… we can bring our authentic selves to work 

… we do not need permission. We take personal accountability and trust each other.

… we can develop our career based on our passion, experience & behaviour and play to our strengths

… we work within less hierarchy – and with more coaching 

… everyone can be a leader, regardless of role

… we aim to spend 20% of our time on personal development

Our UK operating model is based on the following principles:

  •  Flexible resourcing across fit-for-purpose teams to address specific needs and priorities
  •  Healthcare-driven focus through outcomes
  •  Consultation, individual empowerment & accelerated decision-making through decentralisation
  •  Customer focus through mutually beneficial partnerships
  •  Collaboration
  •  Transparent portfolio level prioritisation

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 fulfils you, it enables you to be authentic and truly bring your whole self to work.
