Application for the role of Construction Plant Mechanic
I would like to apply for the role of Construction Plant Mechanic which I have seen advertised in (where) and (when).
I have been fixing plant machinery for (how many years) and I am now seeking a new challenge and the opportunity to work on different equipment and to learn new machinery inside and out. I have been used to working on (name the type of machinery).
I am a very logical thinker and can solve problems easily which is like fixing some plant equipment. I am a very hands on person and never leave a job undone unless I am waiting for specific parts to arrive. I work very unusual hours sometimes to ensure that a site is not let down by its equipment and I am dedicated to my work and to improving my skills as new machinery is built.
I have enclosed my CV which details the plant machinery and equipment that I have been working on. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Thank you for taking the time to read my letter and CV, I look forward to hearing from you in due course.
