Dear Mr Gordon,
Having read your advert on the dayjob.com website, I would like to apply for the position of Catering Assistant.
As an experienced, courteous and efficient Catering Assistant, I am more than able to ensure consistently high standards of service, presentation and cleanliness. I have spent the last two years working for …………….. as a Catering Assistant, doing many of the duties that you have listed in your job description. My current employer has awarded me the ‘Employee of the Month’ certificate no less than four times in the past year.
I always follow instructions accurately and competently, and am able to maintain a high standard of hygiene and safety within the workplace. As a hand’s on person I know how to operate tills, clean tables, take orders from customers, and serve food in fast-paced environments. My other skills include being able to prepare counters, displays and dining areas, as well as set up and dismantle furniture.
I have successfully taken part in many public and private events where I was intimately involved in preparing, presenting and storing food. I also possess a current food hygiene certificate and know a considerable amount about the hospitality and catering industries.
Please find attached my CV, along with copies of my relevant certificates. Besides the experiences listed on my enclosed resume, I must also point out that I have a flexible attitude to working hours and am willing to work extra hours and weekends.
