What we look for
At Roche, we are passionate about health care, and we look for individuals who share this passion!
We look for people who are able to build trusting and meaningful relationships with both customers and colleagues. This includes open, two-way communication and a willingness to engage in teamwork, collaboration and sharing.
The customer is at the center
Because we are a sales division in Denmark, it is important that you put the customer at the center of everything you do – whether you work in customer service, finance or marketing. We expect high performance from all of our employees, and we look for individuals who take responsibility, are result-oriented and who achieve the expected outcomes.
Develop and learn
We encourage an open and innovative environment, and we seek employees who are driven to explore new opportunities and new ways of thinking. You will actively seek development opportunities and apply new knowledge, and we will support you every step of the way.
Our job ads will describe both the experience and education that we are looking for, but also reflect the personal skills and values that we would like our future colleague to possess.
When we have a job opening, we will list it on the website, as well as advertise it in relevant media. After an application deadline, we will evaluate all candidates and keep you updated on the process - whether you are selected for an interview or not. We will typically have several rounds of interviews with both line managers and HR, in which we will conduct an in-depth review of your application and profile, and you will also have the chance to learn more about the job in question.
Even if we do not have a job opening, you are always welcome to send us an unsolicited application. We advise you to read through these career pages, as it will give you an idea of what type of company we are and what sort of persons we are looking for. Furthermore, you can help the process by identifying the working area in which you believe you can add value to our company.
Our recruitment process
At Roche Denmark, we believe in a very thorough recruitment process. We go to great lengths to make sure that the candidates we hire possess the professional and personal skills that will make them successful in a particular job. We also want to make sure that the candidate of our choice will be able to live up to our values.
The success of Roche depends on the continuous development of our talented employees and their abilities to fulfill the needs of our customers.
It is therefore of utmost importance to us to get a thorough knowledge of the applicant before offering the open position to the right candidate. This gives us the best foundation for the future cooperation between the candidate and Roche.
Recruitment in Roche a/s (Pharmaceuticals)
Once the job ad has been closed, we thoroughly screen all applications. Subsequently, we have two or three rounds of interviews with a selected number of applicants.
The first interview is an informal interview in which we will explain the position open as well as offer some information about Roche. The candidate will have an opportunity to explain something about himself/herself and to ask more elaborate questions about the position offered. Our HR-Director and the relevant line manager will participate in this interview.
For some positions, the next interview will be an in-depth interview focusing on a number of skills, which we believe are important in order to achieve job success. The skills are chosen for each position beforehand, and are displayed in the job-ad, so that all candidates will know what is required before applying for the position.
The final interview is carried out by our HR-Director, the relevant line manager and an external consultant. Prior to this interview, we will ask the candidate to take two online tests. One test is a proficiency test, and the other is a test that measures a person’s work style. During the interview, the candidate will receive feedback on the tests. Often, the candidates who have reached the final interview stage will also get an opportunity to meet with one or more members of the relevant team.
Once we know who will go to the final round of interviews, we will let the remaining applicants know, by e-mail, that they have not been selected.
