As an Artisan Baker you’ll be baking a wide variety of breads, cakes and other bakery products from scratch.
You will likely be working for a small independent bakery or within a restaurant kitchen and you might even specialise in the baking of a certain type of bread or product.
Recent years have seen a greater demand for artisan products and this has led to a resurgence of a sector that was in decline, so the opportunities are increasing all the time.
As a Bakery Operative you’ll be working in a large scale plant bakery making lots of different types of bread, cakes and other related products.
You’ll use large scale machines and production lines to make large batches of products which will then be sold and distributed to supermarkets, shops and other wholesale customers.
Most of the bread we eat is produced in large scale bakeries.
