Dear Ms Pea

Re: General Manager position, 893248032

Further to your advertisement on, I submit my application for the position of Alkum Transport and Logistics.

With over 13 years experience in transport and logistics, I have the skills and experience necessary to be a valuable asset to your company. I have degrees in Commerce and Business, and have worked across all levels of the industry from grassroots through to senior management.

Among other achievements, I have been responsible for successfully starting up new interstate business offices and departments, coordinating business units, implementing wide-reaching HR initiatives and generating unprecedented profits.

During my time in my current position of general manager at Dominican Transport, I have successfully overseen business units on a national level, and generated a 20 per cent increase in the company’s customer base and a 15 per cent increase in profits.

In 2002, I was awarded the New South Wales Government Transport and Logistics Professional Achiever Award and in 2006 became the New South Wales Business Woman of the Year. I was elected to the board of the Transport and Logistics Council in 2007.

I look forward in anticipation to discussing my eligibility for the role in person.

Yours sincerely
