Dear Mr Onion
Re: Deli Department Manager
Please accept my application for the position of Deli Department Manager with Grocery Goodness as advertised on Seek.
During my eight years retail experience, I have gained a solid understanding of the deli and fresh produce sector – from product awareness and customer service through to management, budgets and occupational health and safety. I also have qualifications in both retail management and OH&S.
I have worked my way up from deli attendant to my current position of assistant deli manager at Clarins Superstore. Under our management we have renovated the deli department, significantly expanded our range and seen a 15 per cent increase in profits. I have a proven track record in exceeding sales targets and reducing staff turnover.
I have excellent communication and managerial skills and am able to get the best out of my team by promoting a happy workplace environment and ensuring efficient workplace practices. I am energetic, highly-motivated and detail-orientated with a passion for fresh produce and quality goods.
The position at Grocery Goodness perfectly matches my background, strengths and skills, and I believe that I can make a substantial contribution to your company.
I look forward to the opportunity to discuss my qualifications for the position with you at interview.
