Dear Ms Graham,

I saw your advert for a Security Officer on the website and am eager to apply for the said position.

After reading the job description, and seeing the inventory of all the duties, responsibilities and qualifications required from candidates, I quickly realised that they precisely matched by ability to patrol designated areas in accordance with outlined security procedures.

I can establish a professional and visible security presence in any given area.

I have all of the skills you require from a candidate, in particular I want to highlight my ability to maintain a safe and secure environment for staff and visitors by regularly patrolling assigned areas and securing and locking buildings.

As a proven Security Guard, I can identify potential security risks and respond accordingly.
With a passion for Standard Operating Procedures, I have no problem following the strictest of rules. I addition to this I have a reputation for recording all incidents in the appropriate format and writing concise and accurate incident reports as necessary.

With my present employer, …………, I am in charge of securing office buildings, retail stores, hospitals, colleges, casinos, and much more. Working as part of a busy team, I regularly investigate and report irregularities and guard against unlawful behaviour.

On a personal level, I am someone who will always stay level headed and respond quickly in stressful situations. Furthermore, I am physically fit and comfortable kneeling, carrying, bending, walking, and standing for extended periods of time.

Greater details of my accomplishments and achievements can be found in the resume that came attached with this letter.

Right now, I am looking for a suitable position with a reputable company like yours where hard work is acknowledged, development is nurtured, values are never compromised and success is celebrated.

Should you wish to interview me, I can be available within just a few day’s and I can provide references at the time of interview should they be required. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you very much for taking the time to review my application.
