Grow your career at Origin
Everyone is a valued team member at Origin and we’re committed to supporting, growing and helping each individual achieve their potential. Never stop learning. It’s a key message here at Origin, and an important one for us to take and live every day. Learning is about self-discovery, so let’s get discovering!
Our Learning and Development Hub is a one-stop-shop that supports our people to build the skills and knowledge required every day in their role – or to help them prepare for their next role. The Hub is available 24/7 and provides almost endless resources, learning programs, and guides to support ongoing growth and development.
Our people leaders focus on their team members’ performance and development throughout the year. It helps ensure everyone is clear on what they will contribute to Origin’s success and how they will get the job done. Our guides and resources help team members and people leaders have productive performance and development conversations that lead to real growth.
Origin employees have access to expert-led LinkedIn Learning courses that support our people to continue their own professional development. Through LinkedIn Learning, our people can advance their career and access learning across thousands of topics anywhere, anytime.
It’s about creating a place where everyone feels comfortable and safe to bring their whole selves to work, every day. We encourage diversity of thought and the expression of ideas and opinions. We also make a commitment to foster equality of opportunity as part of creating a rewarding workplace for you.

We want to ensure that Origin remains a safe workplace for diverse genders, sexes and sexualities.
