In my job as Sourcing Specialist for IT & Telecom within the Indirect Procurement I don’t have a direct connection to our customers or our patients. However, in our daily work in bringing value to our internal customers, I definitely see, that the patient is in the center of the process. The faster our internal customers get their services or products, the sooner they can work on what patients really need. We try every day to bring the most value to our internal customers, therefore also our daily decisions are customer-value-driven.
The place to Work
For me Roche is THE place to work, as I have everything I need to have for a good work-life-balance. I'mm an early bird and the flexible working hours allow me to work as I feel comfortable. But that’s not all: I enjoy a lot of benefits here, as for example medical consultation by Medical Services on Site, discounts on various insurances and of course the Staff Restaurant, where I’m having lunch every day. As I live in Rotkreuz it doesn’t take me long to go to Roche. However, even in case I’ve an appointment directly after work, there’s a car parking free of charge available so I can just go by car in order to manage my time most efficiently. So you see, why Roche is a great place to work for me.
Within Roche there are a lot of people from different countries and cultures. It doesn’t make work easier, but definitely more interesting. Literally, everyone at Roche around the world is open to connect with and support you - no matter the department, the level or the country. So I can learn and benefit also from other cultures how to handle things as they can learn from me as well. My team for example is a European mix with a lot of temperament and of course not every discussion is easy to handle with different cultures. However, I feel very comfortable with that as I see it brings us forward.
Rotkreuz is a very open site without any barriers to the rest of the industry around us. Thanks to our open-space office, we can work really closely together as a team. It also promotes the exchange with each other and I really feel the teamspirit. Furthermore, I have a lot of different options, where I’d like to work or have meetings: in standard meeting rooms, in the Cafeteria or during summer even outdoors in the “woods”. This gives also a good opportunity to connect to other business areas and teams. In addition to our great infrastructure, including high-quality standard office equipment, I’m even able to work for example in Kaiseraugst or Basel in case my team needs me there.
