Embracing inclusion

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.

widgetsGender affirming support

We want to ensure that Origin remains a safe workplace for diverse genders, sexes and sexualities. For those going through the process of affirming their gender, we have a range of support measures in place including 6-weeks paid leave (or 12-weeks at half pay) for those undertaking a medical affirmation.

We offer leading parental leave benefits plus a range of support tools for working parents. Benefits include 20-weeks paid leave for primary carers without any qualifying time period, part-time return to work options, and "pass the baton" leave options to split leave between primary and secondary caregivers. These measures also extend to surrogacy and permanent fostering.
