Our university mentoring programme offers students studying a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering or Maths) or Law subject at Kings College London or University of Hertfordshire an opportunity to be mentored by one of our exceptional employees, who can share their experiences (both personal and career) in an informal and supportive way. It’s an important part of our passion for diversity & inclusion and commitment to being a trustworthy partner in the communities we work in.
Applicants need to meet certain eligibility criteria and are typically from under-represented groups (e.g. socioeconomically disadvantaged background; minority ethnic groups; disabled; female; LGBTQ+). They take part in a rigorous selection process designed to highlight strong leadership potential. Successful mentees will know themselves, show that they are willing to learn from others and most importantly, be proactive in reaching out to their mentor with their development needs.
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.”
