Dear Ms Graham,
I wish to apply for the position of Senior Team Leader that was advertised last week on the dayjob.com website. I am convinced that my unique blend of skills, together with personality and experience make me an ideal candidate for your position.
I believe that leadership is responsibility not power, and that people cannot work as a team if they don’t see themselves as being part of a team.
I am an accomplished people manager who champions individuals and teamwork, understands the importance of communications and comes to you with a track record of being able to motivate those I lead. You can rely on me to ensure that all tasks given to a team are clear, concise and achievable. I will never make anybody feel more or less important in the team because of their skills, their age or their experience. To me it’s all about getting results together.
In my current role I make sure the team works as a team, and not as a group of people. I provide direction, instructions and guidance to a individuals from different cultural backgrounds, for the purpose of achieving set goals. I allocate tasks between team members, and only to those I am sure are able to do the job.
On a personal level I regularly review my own practice, set myself high targets and take responsibility for own personal development. To me everyone’s opinion counts and I go out of my way to get feedback from those I supervise.
Right now I would like to work for a company like yours that encourages and rewards individual initiative, innovation and creativity. Further proof of my competencies can be found in the attached resume. Finally, please feel free to contact me to arrange an interview if you think there is potential in my application.
