Why choose a career at Origin?
We are committed to creating the best workplace for you to harness your good energy
Inclusion in the workplace
Diversity and inclusion are central to the way we work. We know diverse workplaces create good energy by allowing our people to bring their whole selves to work, fostering better ideas, and collaborating to better anticipate and meet the needs of our customers.
A rewarding career full of benefits
We offer our people a range of benefits to support their careers, lifestyle and changing needs
We believe work life balance is important. Be empowered to work smarter in a way that suits your lifestyle. We provide a flexible, supportive working environment.
We’re committed to helping our employees achieve better work-life balance. You can purchase up to 20 days’ extra leave each year to do more of what you want to do.
Full of opportunity
A great workplace means something different to everyone. We want you to bring your whole self to work and feel supported by your people leaders and by your team.
Learning and development
We believe in investing in the professional development of our people. We’ve created a Learning and Development Hub which supports our people to grow their careers and build skills for the future of work.
We have people all over – some talk to our customers, some deliver LPG, some install solar, and some are in corporate services. Our roles and priorities are all different, but that’s why every day, in a million different ways, we’re focused on getting energy right for our customers, communities, and planet. At Origin, you’ll work with a diverse group of people who together put good energy into practice.
Supporting our people
Gender affirming leave
Because we’re committed to creating a more inclusive workplace for our LGBTIQA+ communities, we’ve introduced 6 weeks of fully paid leave or 12 weeks at half pay for employees who are medically affirming their gender. This new leave initiative is part of our program of medical, social and legal support for people going through the process of gender affirmation.
Leading parental support
We’re proud to offer one of the most generous parental leave policies in the Australian energy industry where primary carers are entitled to 20 weeks of paid leave, with no qualifying time period. We recognise not all families look the same, so our benefits are gender neutral and available to many family forms, including surrogacy, same sex couples, permanent fostering and adoption. Plus, we have a Working Parents platform in partnership with Grace Papers, to provide our working parents with on-demand support.
Through paid volunteer leave, our employees spread good energy by planting trees, sorting groceries and toys, cleaning up parks and woodlands, and serving hot meals for the most vulnerable people in our communities. Through our Origin Energy Foundation, we have helped more than 62,000 young Australians reach their potential, breaking the cycle of disadvantage through education. When our employees donate to their favourite charities via our Give2 program, our foundation will match it dollar for dollar (some conditions apply).
Employee Share Plan
Our Employee Share Plan offers eligible employees up to $1,000 worth of Origin shares annually, and is a fantastic benefit of working at Origin. In addition to the financial benefits, owning shares in our company is a great way for all our people to be brand advocates and gain from the work we do to deliver value for our customers, communities, people and shareholders.
Our employees can access exclusive offers for a range of products including discounted Origin broadband, electricity and natural gas, LPG and solar, energy storage, home products and more.
