Dear Ms Graham,
I would like to introduce myself as a candidate for the Retail Manager position that your company advertised yesterday on the Dayjob.com website.
As someone who relishes the day to day challenges which managing a fast paced high turnover store brings, I feel I would make an ideal candidate for your opening.
Overall I have five years of Retail Management experience, of which I have spent the last two working for the Central Fashion Shop. This involves me in key tasks such as; leading and directing the work of others, being in daily contact with customers to find out what they want, organising promotional events, keeping an eye on sales figures and producing weekly sales reports.
If you would like to know more about my background and skill sets then please refer to the attached resume that came with this letter. Although it will give you a good idea of my leadership skill, what it does not show is my ability to track sales performance by identifying underperforming stock as well as profitable best sellers.
My business skills and experience of marketing have given me a strong understanding of the issues required for successful retailing.
Right now I am very keen to work for a business like yours that is expanding rapidly and which can offer me superb future career progression opportunities.
I look forward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience, and would like to thank you in advance for your time and consideration.
Tel: 0044 121 638 0026
