Dear Mr Grove,
I am writing in response to your retail management vacancy that was advertised today on the dayjob.com website.
I firmly believe that I am perfectly suited to this role as I have the relevant experience, qualifications and future potential that you are looking for in a candidate. I thrive on leading and coaching a retail team, and have knowledge of the latest retail technology, stock control procedures, and visual merchandising methodologies. I have a long track record of running my own store, possess a passion for exceptional customer service and have the ability to listen to customers and understand their needs.
With my present employer, Marches Retail Store, I am responsible for all the day to day site operations, ensuring health and safety compliance, attending to a diverse range of customer queries and measuring commercial performance against set targets.
Possessing an unwavering commitment to the motivation, training and personal development of my staff, I am able to motivate any team by developing their talents and opening the door to new opportunities for them. I make everyone work together because to me everyone counts. I combine my commercial skills with a passion for customer service and driving sales, whilst all the time aiming to make my department the most appealing it can be. In short I make the most out of every opportunity and challenge.
I am currently looking for a unique position with a successful and growing company like yours where I will have a high degree of freedom to manage my own store.
I look forward to meeting you in the near future to discuss this position further, and in the meantime I thank you for taking the time to consider my application.
