Dear Bob,

I would like to apply for the Operations Manager position advertised recently on SEEK.

I am a goal-oriented operations manager with nine years’ broad senior management experience in assisting companies to maximise efficiency and achieve sustainable growth.

I have a demonstrated ability to deliver on productivity goals, increase efficiencies and maintain product quality. In my current role at Source Fuels I manage over 60 factory floor staff, overseeing budgetary, OH&S and industrial relations issues. I have a professional reputation for meeting and exceeding KPIs and have developed and delivered successful strategies to reduce warehouse costs by 18 per cent and increase DIFOT to above 95 per cent.

My qualifications in management have enhanced my ability to carry out these functions, but I believe it is my interpersonal skills that have driven my success in fostering strong workplace processes and supplier relationships. I also possess a high level of computer literacy and have managed projects that required solid IT skills. My role with Tranz Port required the consolidation of digital financial and personnel systems for more effective operations.

My leadership experience with mid-sized manufacturing and logistics organisations such as Tranz Port, Oblivion and Source Fuels has allowed me to develop sound productivity strategies to meet differing requirements. I lead by example and approach all my work with energy and enthusiasm, and I look forward to utilising my skills in a new and challenging setting.

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

Yours sincerely,

Bill Griffin
