Meet the recruiter – Matt Lant

Recruiters shouldn’t have all the fun. We’re turning the tables on Origin’s recruiters and ‘finding out a bit more about them’ and ‘what makes them tick’. Why? So you know a little bit more about who you’re chatting to when you apply for a job at Origin (and how to get into their good books).

Meet Matt Lant

I am mainly focused on recruiting Executive positions for our Corporate, Retail and Solar divisions and regularly recruit leadership positions roles across Digital, Technology, Marketing, Energy Trading and People & Culture. Before stepping into the recruitment industry I spent time at the Royal Military College Duntroon and as a personal trainer. I’ve now been recruiting for over 10 years and after spending the early days of my career in agency, I more recently worked with a Financial Services search firm where I was aligned to a partner focused on Insurance, running a variety of domestic and international searches.  

Over the years I’ve recruited such a variety of interesting roles at Origin. It’s an incredibly diverse and dynamic business. One that stands out is the Manager, Commercial and Shipping for our LNG Portfolio. Recruiting for what was effectively a start-up team and to recruit someone whose remit included setting up a shipping capability in such a technical field was fascinating and offered me the opportunity to speak to some really impressive candidates.  

Outside of work I love doing pretty much anything that’s outdoors including bushwalking, bike riding and I’m a passionate albeit pretty average Crossfit fanatic. I’ve got two primary school aged children who keep me otherwise occupied and I am in an ongoing house renovation loop.

With a particular interest in supporting diversity & inclusion through innovative sourcing solutions as well as emerging recruiting technologies, I’m always happy to discuss career opportunities with those interested in Origin.
