Dear Ms Graham,
Your company recently posted an opening for a Purchase Manager on the Dayjob.com website, this is a role that seems to fit my precise competencies and for which I am enthusiastically applying.
You can rely on me to consistently deliver quality, service and value for money during the course of my duties.
I am an expert at using a variety of tools and resources to find out about a potential supplier, and to see if they can deliver the desired goods on time, in the correct quantities, and without sacrificing quality.
I have a proactive procurement philosophy which means that I insist on visiting a supplier’s warehouse to evaluate them before I make a final decision to buy or not. I can keep strict control of the procurement processes and have the capacity to build relationships quickly and negotiate effectively.
In addition to my deep experience of setting longer term goals for any purchasing operations, I also have extensive knowledge of maintaining and reviewing records of items bought, costs, deliveries, product performance, and inventories. I also use my research skills to ensure that I have a working technical knowledge of the goods or services to be bought.
Although the attached resume will demonstrate my multiple strengths, what it may not show is my ability to;
- Oversee the hiring of new purchasing staff.
- Write up professional orders and contracts.
- Decide the best procurement strategy for a package.
Right now I am keen to join a company like yours that values and recognizes the unique talents and potential of all its employees.
I am certain that a face-to-face meeting would more fully reveal my positive attitude and ability to meet your expectations. In this regard please feel free to contact me to arrange an interview at your convenience.
I have excellent references and would be delighted to discuss your vacancy with you at a time and place of your choosing.
