Apprentice Butcher Jobs in Australia
An Apprentice Butcher receives intensive on-the-job training while also attending a training institution to gain formal qualifications.

An Apprentice Butcher may work in a large factory that produces bulk meat items for supermarket or delicatessen sales, or in a small, independent butcher shop.

Australian Apprentices receive additional assistance from the Government in most circumstances. Those keen to enter an Apprentice Butcher position may benefit from the advice and expertise of an Apprenticeship Centre.

  • preparing meat, fish and poultry for sale
  • unloading meat carcasses from delivery trucks

  • understanding the various “cuts” of meat, including steaks, chops, or roasts
  • grinding meat to make mince
