Our University Mentoring Scheme offers students at Kings College London and University of Hertfordshire an opportunity to be mentored by one of our exceptional employees, who work in a global pharmaceutical industry. They can share their experiences (both personal and career) in an informal and supportive way.
This program is for those who are consider themselves to be from one or more of the following: socioeconomically disadvantaged; a minority ethnic group; disabled; female; or apart of the LGBTQ+ community.
The scheme aims to help you navigate your way through uni and/or your first career steps. Therefore your potential mentor will typically have experience working within a global corporate organisation ranging from STEM to Legal related backgrounds.
To be awarded a mentor you will have to apply in a similar process when applying for a job. This will give you the opportunity to practice applying for a job and will help shape your mentor relationship.
For this reason we will want you to demonstrate how well you know yourself, show that you are willing to learn from others and most importantly, that you will be proactive in when reaching out to your mentor.
This dynamic and flexible Programme includes:
- 12 months of mentoring (face to face and virtually)
- A visit to the UK head office of a global corporation
- An interactive “Experience Day” workshop with our Early Careers team
- Networking opportunity with other Programme participants
- A chance to hear from Roche’s leaders

The 2019/20 Scheme is now open for applications.
“I have really appreciated and learnt invaluable knowledge from my mentor. I have been in contact with him and it has been so easy to approach him for advice, being able to ask him about his own experiences working with Roche. I know that I have gained not only a mentor but a friend; someone who inspires me and someone who I wish to emulate in my future.”
“The Experience Day was exactly that, a really good experience! Made me think and self-reflect a lot. It was also a great opportunity to speak to people I never would have got the chance to otherwise.”
