Dear …………,

Your posting on for a Bar Manager position caught my eye because I am currently looking for just such an opening.

I am not only good at mixing cocktails, but also have the charming personality and individual style needed to tell patrons exciting stories that will keep them coming back for more than what they drink. In essence, I can ensure that every one of your guests is very happy with service they receive in your bar.

As an outstanding individual who can consistently hit all the targets set for me, I feel I would be a perfect fit for your position.

My past experience of ensuring that every effort is made by myself and my team to improve drink sales, fits extremely well with the requirements of your vacancy. In particular I want to highlight how I will efficiently run the bar area by ensuring that all staff are fulfilling their duties to the best of their ability.

My extensive experience in the world of hospitality is well documented in the attached CV. In it you will see that I can proactively get things done. All of this is on top of my ability to work as part of a close knit team. My key strengths include;

  • Being able to remain on my feet for much of the time in an environment that may be hot and noisy.
  • A willingness to get involved in everything that is going on around me.
  • Having the meticulous attention to detail needed to ensure that not just the big things but also the small things get done properly.

Since 2018 I have been employed by …………, where I have built a unique culture, positive staff attitude and very high standards. On an average day I ensure strict adherence to budgets, increase profits and manage cashflow. The work that I do with my present employer has not only equipped me to keep staff busy and productive at all times, but has also given me the ability to ensure an outstanding guest experience within any café, hotel or restaurant environment.

On a personal level I possess superb communication skills along with the emotional intelligence needed to read a person’s mood and adjust my attitude towards them accordingly. Furthermore, I consider myself ‘streetwise’ enough to be able to hold a good conversation with people from all social and cultural backgrounds.

At this stage of my career I would like to work for a company like yours that can offer me a competitive holiday allowance with an option to purchase additional holidays if need be. The enclosed resume provides a more detailed description of my education, interests, and work experience. If acceptable, I will contact you next week to confirm your receipt of my application, however please free to contact me if you require clarification or any further information.

Yours sincerely,
