At Otsuka, doing things differently, and for the better, is an integral part of our company culture and heritage. Through creativity, innovation, listening and perseverance we constantly strive to create the healthcare solutions of tomorrow, aiming to improve the lives of millions of people across the globe.

Our Working Environment

In 2014 Otsuka Pharmaceutical Europe's offices were re-located to spacious offices based just outside London near Wexham. We provide a work environment that is inspiring, friendly, vibrant and dynamic, allowing employees to enjoy their work and for creativity to thrive. We even have a themed restaurant called ‘The Otsuka Arms’ with an interior reminiscent of an old-time English pub, a theme that is replicated across many of Otsuka’s global offices!

Employee wellbeing is very important to us at Otsuka, and we have numerous resources to support mental, physical and financial wellbeing of all our employees. These range from offering on-site fitness classes to providing financial advice.
