Dear Ms Graham,
Yesterday, I saw your advert on the Dayjob.com website for a General Manager, and after reading the job description immediately realised that I would be a perfect fit for it.
I come to you as a hands on General Manager who has experience of leading teams in all areas of a business. I am looking for exactly the sort of vacancy that you are advertising, one where I will have the chance to contribute and influence within a rapidly growing business.
Since June 2012 I have been employed by The Southern Restaurant Company as a General Manager at one of their busiest restaurants. I take an active role in everything that goes on around me and am intimately involved in planning daily work activities, managing budgets, delegating responsibilities and supervising the performance of staff.
I have a track record of creating a memorable dining experience for customers by looking after their every need. In addition to this, I am a natural leader who is very good at coaching, developing and motivating staff to do better. Furthermore, I work well under pressure, can manage multiple tasks at short notice and am an expert at prioritising my own workload.
I would like the opportunity to discuss my competencies and potential in more detail with you, and am available for an interview at your earliest convenience.
In the meantime I would like to thank you for your time and expectantly wait to hear a positive response from you.
Tel: 0044 121 638 0026
