Dear Ms Lock,

Re: Security Officer position

I am writing to apply for the position of Security Officer, as advertised recently on SEEK.com.au.

I am a highly organised and motivated professional security officer with five years experience on the ground.

In my present role, I conduct security operations for a high-profile biotechnology company. This role includes both mobile and static day and night surveillance operations, the investigation of disturbances, boom gate and personnel inspections, CCTV monitoring, and handling emergencies. I am also responsible for training new members of our security team, and for reporting on security operations on a nightly and monthly basis.

In my previous role as security guard at a well-known jewellery store, I oversaw a period of zero theft – a first in the business’s 20-year history.

Throughout my security experience, I have endeavoured to perform security duties with professionalism and diligence. I am praised for my diplomatic approach to problems and sound customer service and communication skills. I am calm but assertive when dealing with trespassers and disturbances, and I am comfortable using force when absolutely necessary and appropriate.

I hold a Certificate III in Security Operations. I also have my Northern Territory security licence, driver’s licence and a current first aid certificate. I also hold a black belt in Aikido, and proficiency in the Israeli self-defence system, Krav Maga.

I am able to work to a flexible roster, encompassing weekends and public holidays. My goal is to continue to provide professional and capable security services in the aid of business. Working for SafeGuard, I believe, would enable me to utlilise my existing skills and continue building on them into the future.

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


Kind regards,
