Dear Mr Hunter

Re: Human Resources Manager position

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

I am an outcome-oriented Human Resources specialist who has worked in various senior HR positions to assist companies in achieving sustainable business growth and a positive operating culture.

I have a demonstrated ability to manage the demands of employee recruitment, training and termination, as well as the day-to-day requirements of remuneration management, Occupational Health and Safety, and industrial relations issues. My qualifications and professional development have contributed to my ability to manage these diverse responsibilities, but I believe it is my interpersonal skills and open-door policy that have driven my success in fostering strong long-term workplace processes and relationships.

In my current and previous positions I have been responsible for driving the learning and development of both the management team and the general staff. I always aim to support and coach the team with positivity to encourage engagement and shape the culture of the organisation.

A key skill I have acquired is the ability to successfully develop, implement and manage new HR systems and procedures. I enjoy the challenge of integrating a new system and working with the wider HR team to ensure a smooth and improved workflow. I have a proactive management style with the ability to drive significant change management activities.

I am highly computer literate and have managed projects that required solid IT skills, such as the design and implementation of print and online marketing collateral.I approach all my work with an enthusiastic, professional attitude and look forward to utilising my skills in a new and challenging environment.

I would welcome the opportunity to discuss my qualifications and experience with you in further detail.

Yours sincerely,
