Application for the role of Kennel Worker
I would like to apply for the role of Kennel Worker which I have seen advertised in (which publication, when and any job reference).
I have always been interested in working with animals and have always grown up with pets in particular dogs and just enjoy caring for them and watching them grow. Each dog has a different personality like humans and it’s nice to get to know and work with dogs.
I have a very calm and patient nature, I am also very caring and would really like to have a career working with animals. I am organised, accurate in my work, have experience in different foods and diets for dogs and how they should be made up.
I feel that I have excellent communication skills and can relate to different people as required.
Please find enclosed my CV for your consideration which highlights my skills and experiences. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Thank you for taking the time to read my letter and CV and I look forward to hearing from you.
