International Recruitment(外国人採用・留学生採用)

ROHTO Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd is a multinational company with a history of over 120 years, renowned for its fast-moving consumer goods and OTC drugs. Headquartered in Osaka, Japan, with various domestic and overseas subsidiaries. Although we were initially known for OTC drugs, part of our DNA is to do the unexpected, and for the purpose of people and society’s well-being, we pursue businesses not limited to pharmaceutical operations. Our devotion to meet and exceed customer expectations is the core of Rohto’s business, which has been our main motivator and guidance throughout these years. Recently we announced our comprehensive Management Vision 2030, establishing the core areas we want to strengthen by 2030. With our spirit of "NEVER SAY NEVER" we strive to make every individual and society healthier.

To accomplish this, we are seeking people who can support and accelerate the growth of Rohto. The driving force behind Rohto is unquestionably the “people”. A truly diverse workforce is inherently stronger as it is highlighted by people from varying backgrounds with unique experiences, points of view, and knowledge. We believe that this plays an important role in maximizing creativity and accelerating innovation. Our way of working is by embracing the spirit of close cooperation, taking challenges, stir passionate debate and being action oriented.

A career at Rohto will help you realize your potential and push yourself to be the better version of you. Are you ready to take part in this journey?

Ideal candidate profile

Think Global, Act Local

"The current way is not necessarily the best way." With this perspective in mind, if you are able to translate your global perspectives to offer new insights and deliver new values in our very domestic workplace to achieve our management vision, it would be of utmost value.

Proactive & Energetic

Creating new things require curiosity, strong will and proactiveness to initiate. These are attributes we find vital, especially when you are applying your research background and experience to bridge Science to the Businesses of Rohto.


Flexibility of being able to play both (leader and follower) roles efficiently is valued, but most importantly to have your own hypothesis and being able to voice it out regardless of your role is most appreciated.

ロート製薬が常に大切にしていることは、顧客ニーズです。「Never Say Never」のスローガンの下で、お客様が本当に何を求めているかを研究し、製品・サービスを通して「健康」と「幸せ」を届けています。今やグローバルが当たり前の世界において、ニーズを研究する対象はひとつの国・ひとつの人種ではありません。それぞれの国の文化や価値観を互いに理解し合い、真に必要とされる製品・サービスを提供できるグローバルアイデアを生み出せるチームワークを私たちは必要としているのです。
