Dear Mr Jones

Re: Chief Firefighter position

I would like to apply for the full-time Chief Firefighter position with the Forestville Rural Fire Service as advertised on Seek.

I am an experienced firefighter with over eight years experience both in the field and as chief of a regional fire station.

For the last four years, I have worked as chief firefighter at the Kurrawong Area Branch of Northern Territory Fire Services. During my time there, I demonstrated my ability to successfully manage and coordinate the day-to-day operations of a fire service department.

I streamlined recruitment and training processes to improve efficiency, successfully managed budgets, maintained high team performance standards and was regularly commended by the NTFS for high quality work and service.

As a firefighter, I have been repeatedly recognised by citizens, community groups and supervisors for quick thinking, calm and correct response to a multitude of crisis and emergency situations.

I have excellent crisis and risk management skills, strong leadership, networking and communication skills, superior leadership and excellent project management and coordination skills.

I have the necessary skills and qualifications for this position and look forward to further discussing my suitability for the role at interview.

Yours sincerely
