Working at Chugai in Europe

Are you looking to join a company that has an ambitious mission for patients, offers flexibility to support your needs, and is fully committed to investing in your development?

Then Chugai in Europe may be the place for you.

You could join our team working in research and development, supply chain, medical, marketing, sales, digital, regulatory, finance, HR and more, as they seek to deliver innovative solutions for global healthcare challenges.

Working closely with Roche in Europe, and building on our strong Japanese heritage, you can be confident of delivering quality at the forefront of innovation, whilst our smaller regional footprint ensures that you will be offered exciting and challenging responsibilities from day one, operating in a European set-up with accessibility to senior leaders.

As a region, we believe in the “Power Of Together”, and that Collaboration, People and Excellence are at the heart of everything we do. Many of our teams work cross-functionally and across our three countries, as we know that when we work in partnership, share expertise and experience, we can achieve more together. We offer a diverse, inclusive, and equitable work environment where our employees can be themselves, thrive and have equal opportunities.

An Award-Winning Culture

We pride ourselves on our culture at Chugai in Europe and have been recognised by some of the leading assessors of employee engagement for the environment that we offer, whether that is in France, Germany, or the UK.

In recent surveys our team have highlighted our commitment to quality, the respect and recognition they receive, and the autonomy and support available, with the whole team encouraged to offer new ideas, challenge the norm, and embrace mistakes. By operating in a matrix structure, we seek to remove barriers to effective teamwork, and our leaders actively encourage an open environment. With each country recently moving into new offices set-up to accommodate hybrid working, flexibility is encouraged, whether that is working from home or collaborating in our open working spaces.

The team dynamic is strengthened through regular conferences and company events, helping to reinforce relationships and our “Power Of Together” ethos. We strive to deliver innovation and recognise that this arises through teams that share different values, backgrounds, and specialities. Therefore, we are committed to creating an environment in which different people can flourish, regardless of their gender, ethnicity, or age etc.

All of this helps us create a culture in which our team feel comfortable and can develop professionally and personally to deliver their best work.

But don’t just take our word for it!
