Retail stores and retailers can earn a good living selling products to customers online.
If you want to make a living, you’ll need to become licensed.
This article outlines some of the requirements to become a licensed retail manager in Australia.
Retail licenses are not issued by any government, so you need to have the right qualifications and you can only work as a retail manager if you are: in a job which requires the ability to communicate and deal with a large group of people at one time, and to work in a retail setting; or you’re willing to work a number of hours per week; or a person who has completed a course of training.
If it’s the former, you will need to demonstrate that you can meet these requirements.
To get your license, you must: complete a four-month apprenticeship program to learn about the profession; and pass a written exam in your chosen area of training which covers all the areas covered by the licence.
You’ll need this test to complete your training and to pass a practical test.
You will then receive a licence certificate from the NSW Department of Primary Industries (DPI).
You can apply for a retail license online or through the NSW government.
If your job involves dealing with customers, you need a retail sales license to work as one of the retail sales managers.
This is a licence issued by the NSW department of primary industries (DPIs) which is issued for retail employees only.
The department’s website provides more information on the retail licence process.
Licences for employees are issued by a NSW department or by the department of state governments.
These can be purchased online or in person.
Some departments issue their own retail licenses.
The most common retail license types are: an employer license , which allows an employer to work from home.
There are no restrictions on the number of employees who can work from a home.
