Dear Ms Shent

Re: Engineering manager position at Smooth Operator Inc

I am writing to apply for the position of Engineering Manager, as advertised on SEEK.

I am a senior industrial engineer with over 13 years’ experience in automotive manufacturing and mining operations and seven years at management level. My strengths lie in strategy and business turnaround, process improvement and building relationships at all levels of an organisation.

I am a resourceful manager who can maintain big picture thinking and develop major business development strategies while attending to the detail of operational processes. In each of my managerial roles, I have helped to increase productivity and efficiency, reduced down time/lost time and restructured maintenance activities while increasing maintenance compliance and execution. My track record clearly demonstrates my abilities as a manager and decision-maker with clear vision and a focus on efficiency, productivity and systems improvement.

As General Manager for Titanic Automotive, I managed four factories and gained extensive experience in large-scale operations management. My drive to continually improve productivity and efficiency was demonstrated by my ability to increase production by re-allocating resources and reducing production faults, wastage and error, implement training and development programs and increase annual turnover. Similarly, as the Manufacturing Manager for Domo Electrics, I developed initiatives to reduce plant downtime and improved output through value stream analysis and building appropriate forecasting models.

I hold quality, production and industrial technology qualifications and completed a Bachelor of Engineering Technology from the University of New England. Throughout my career I have been committed to continual professional development with additional diplomas in management and quality control. I am also currently completing a Master’s degree in Business Administration through SEEK Learning.

I have high-level communication and interpersonal skills and I am an effective team leader, with the ability to work in a culturally diverse environment. I have a strong business and strategic focus as well as excellent people management and resource management skills. With my extensive experience and knowledge of business processes, engineering and operations, I believe I could make a valuable contribution to your team and help lead the organisation to further success.

My resume is attached and I look forward to being able to discuss the position with you further.

Yours sincerely,
