Cover Letter for CNC Machinist

Mrs. A. Manager
Application for a CNC Machinist
I have recently seen your advert for a CNC Machinist role at your site (where). The role I saw was advertised in (where) and (when) and I would like to apply for this position.
I have had some previous experience in this role and have been part of carrying out the operations, choosing the correct tools for each part, checking the work meets the correct standards and requirements and reading and interpreting technical drawings and engineers’ instructions.
I feel that I am a very practical person who likes to work hands on and this is one of the reasons why I entered into this career path.
I can work well with others as well as working on my own initiative and prior to doing this role before I have worked in a warehouse setting so am very familiar with the environment in which this role takes place in.
I have no commitments and can work to any shift pattern as required and am keen to secure my career within this engineering role.
I have enclosed my CV which details my experiences. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me and I will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
Thank you for taking the time to read my letter and CV and I look forward to hearing from you.
