Dear Ms Sure
Re: Security Guard position
I am writing to apply for the position of Security Guard, as advertised recently on SEEK.com.au.
I am a highly responsible and professional security guard, with experience in door operations at some of Sydney’s best-known and busiest nightclubs.
In my present role as security guard for Peppy Sarsaparilla’s, I hold all the responsibilities of a nightclub security guard, including inspection of patrons, ID checks, confiscation of illicit substances and weapons, crowd control, application of club exclusion policy, eviction of intoxicated or trouble-making persons, and the protection of staff, patrons and pedestrians in general. My role also involves contacting emergency services or the police when necessary.
In my previous role I performed similar services at the well-known Laundry Club in Drover. This was a generally rougher clientele, though during my tenure I ensured that there was no incident of major violence or compromised patron or staff safety. It was here that I was able to sharpen my weapon disablement and crowd control skills, as well as my ability to deal with difficult, volatile and intoxicated personalities.
I am someone who prides myself on my professionalism and sound judgment, so that patrons are free to enjoy themselves in a relaxed and safe environment. I exercise keen powers of observation, recognising signs of conflict and acting before a situation escalates. I also have a generally calm and personable nature, which helps to defuse conflict and potentially volatile situations.
I hold a Certificate II in Security Operations, a NSW security licence and a current first aid certificate. I have my own transport and am happy to undergo police and/or RTA checks.
I am also physically fit and healthy, and experienced at working up to 12-hour shifts. I am able to work weekends, and to a flexible roster.
My resume is attached and I look forward to being able to discuss the position with you further.
