In Australia there are more than 7,000 bakeries with more than 35,000 employees. The industry is growing strongly, especially in Victoria, where the baker is one of the most requested professions and valid for the State Nomination, providing you have all the requirements (English level, diploma and experience).
The position is called a baker and it appears on the CSOL list, but for more information it is best to consult the Department of Immigration website or a migration agent. Those who are interested in working as a baker, can attend the Certificate III in Retail Baking or Certificate IV in Advanced Baking.
