Dear Sir or Madam, This letter is to express my special interest in discussing the position advertised on the Job site. The opportunity presented is very appealing, and I believe that my experience and education will make me a competitive candidate for this role. I have had two harvest job so far since leaving the Armed forces and I am now in a permanent role on another farm, this was an opportunity that I always look back on. The job was with Mr Alan Jackson at Rugley Farm in Alnwick. Although, I have been working primarily as a Supply and Logistic Manager for the Armed Forces for the last 23 years, I have recently retired and looking to develop my skills further and top up my pension. Throughout the years, I have communicated with a variety of individuals at all levels. This has instilled multi-dimensional communication skills and an ability to recognise, act upon, and fulfill customer wishes and needs in order to ensure their continued, and positive, relationship with the business. In fact, in my most recent job as a Supply and Logistic Manager, I received recognition due to my ability to coordinate complex logistics in order to keep customers happy even when issues arose that were beyond the control of the organisation. Again, this involved not only managing operations but also communicating directly with customers. As a result, I believe my combined ability to successfully manage operations while also effectively with customers makes me a prime candidate for this role. The key strengths that I possess for success in this position include, but are not limited to, the following: • Provide exceptional contributions to customer service for all customers. • Strive for continued excellence. • Strong communication skills. • Eager to learn new things. You will find me to be well-spoken, energetic, confident, and personable, the type of person on whom your customers will rely. I also have a wide breadth of experience of the type that will allow you the versatility to place me in a number of contexts with confidence that the level of excellence you expect will be met. Please see my CV for additional information on my experience. I hope that you'll find my experience and interests intriguing enough to propose a face-to-face meeting, as I am confident that I could provide value to you and your customers as a member of your team. I am very excited about this opportunity to work for your company. I connect with your mission to deliver excellent customer service to both your staff and your customers. This is reflected in my own professional and personal values, and I believe this alignment strongly supports my application for this role. I can be reached anytime via 07507273477.
