Dear Ms Graham,

I would like to be considered for your Security Guard position which I saw yesterday on the website. During my career I have gained extensive experience of working in customer service orientated security roles like the one you are trying to fill, and therefore feel I would make an ideal candidate for your position.

I am able to provide you with five years of checkable and traceable work history, and am willing to be subjected any drugs screening test. In addition to this I have top quality references from my present/previous employers, and a bank of relevant industry certificates and accreditation documents. My core skills include, but are not limited to;

  • Making environments secure and safe for all.
  • Preventing theft, rowdy behaviour and vandalism.
  • Handling sensitive and confrontational situations tactfully and in a diplomatic manner.

At the moment I am employed as a freelance security contractor for an Agency. I work long 12 hour shifts on construction sites, office blocks, shopping malls and airports. I am regularly involved in escorting VIP’s, fire marshalling, establishing where alarms have been triggered, co-ordinating fire evacuations and liaising with the emergency services.

On a personal level, I have a calm manner, polite attitude and smart appearance, all of which help me to portray a professional image to members of the public. In addition to this I have my own car, a clean driving license and am willing to travel to remote work sites.

I would also like to stress that I am keen to work for a company like yours, that has a reputation for offering its staff great benefits and opportunities for career development.

I can be contacted anytime by telephone on 0121 638 0026, or by email at to arrange an interview.

Thank you very much for taking the time to review my application.

Yours sincerely,
