Re: Application for a Handyman
I have recently seen your advert for a Handyman and I would like to apply.
I have had a great deal of experience on a professional and personal level on all areas of DIY and I find great enjoyment from fixing things, making them up to look right etc. I can turn my hand to most areas from building flat pack equipment to painting and decorating and I am happy to try and learn anything new.
In my previous roles I have looked after the outside of buildings and houses, making sure all the paths are swept and clean and that if there are any breakages that they are repaired safely and effectively.
I feel that I have excellent communication skills; I have had some good references from previous employers and clients and always ensure that I get the job done.
I am now looking to continue my career in this area that I enjoy. I am flexible on working hours and location; I do have a clean driving licence and am able to travel as needed.
Should you be interested in my skills detailed on my CV and want to find out more please do not hesitate to contact me.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Good luck with your job applications and let us know if you need this letter in any other format rather than just text.
