Dear Mr Gordon,
My name is Mark Harris and I would like to apply for the Bar Staff vacancy that was advertised yesterday on the Dayjob.com website.
I am a friendly, outgoing, smartly dressed and energetic individual who can hit the ground running and make an immediate and positive impact on your business. As an experienced bar tender I aim to become a vital member of your customer-facing team by delivering a top quality service to customers and by ensuring that all drinks and food is presented to the high standards.
I can do more than just pour pints, and have a passion for serving food and drinks and putting smiles on people’s faces. As a confident individual who has superb communication skills, I can easily build up a rapport with people who have been drinking, and will be at the forefront of creating a friendly, buzzing atmosphere for patrons to enjoy.
While viewing my enclosed CV you will quickly see that I have comprehensive knowledge of cocktails, drink prices, cash handling, bar equipment, customer service and taking orders from patrons. I can work with all types of beverages, wines and spirits, and am able to keep up-to-date with current promotions and new products.
As a hand’s on person I will always keep the bar, front of house, beer gardens and toilets clean, and as a responsible person I will adhere to all licensing laws, trading standards, food hygiene requirements, and health and safety standards.
If you find me to be a suitable person for your position then do not hesitate to contact me by phone, letter or email. I am eager for an opportunity to demonstrate to you my knowledge, skills and experience to you and would be very grateful if you would invite me for a interview.
