Cost & Contracts Manager (Brisbane)
"Despite language barriers, Origin gave me a career, when others wouldn't give me an interview."
Trying to get a job was a challenge. English was my second language and while my communication skills were improving, I needed practice in a business environment. I was proud of my professional achievements in my home country, but they didn’t count for much because I didn’t have a working history in Australia. I was finding it tough to get an interview, let alone a job!
Fast forward eight years, and Origin has not only given me a start, I now have a career. It’s a big, diverse organisation that creates opportunities for our people to learn, grow and step up. I have had the opportunity to grow professionally while also extending my family. Origin provides a flexible environment that allows our people to achieve their personal goals too. I’m proof of that!
Origin is a place where managers are encouraged to support the growth of their people. I feel fortunate for the support of my managers – but that’s just how it is at Origin. Now, my goal is to provide the same opportunities for the people in my team.
