If you are going to apply for a Kitchen Assistant job and are looking for an example covering letter then look no further.
Writing a good job application letter to the employer can be more effective than an extensive CV, although of course you should send your CV to accompany it! You can’t really do a lot with your CV as it is a list of whatever you have done in the past like work history etc. however you can highlight many things in a covering letter that you have not necessarily done, but perhaps would like to.
You don’t have to have any entry level or qualifications to become a Kithcen Assistant so anyone can apply for these jobs as long as they want to.

Dear Mrs Smith
Position of Kitchen Assistant
I enclose my CV in relation to the above post as I am really interested in working in your hotel.
You will see from my work experience that I have worked in several different restaurant kitchens and I enjoy the fast pace and close team environment. I am a physically active person and have the energy and fitness levels to work long shifts, assisting the chefs in preparing food, keeping the kitchen clean and loading and unloading the dishwasher. I have demonstrated in the past that I can undertake these tasks quickly and efficiently to help keep the kitchen running smoothly.
I have received regular training in food hygiene and health and safety and only require brief refresher training to bring my qualifications up to date. I work well under pressure and am good at managing different demands without affecting quality. I can bring enthusiasm and dedication patience to the job and would love to be a part of the hotel’s success.
I am keen to discuss my qualities in greater detail at interview and can be contacted on (phone number) or (e-mail address).
Thank you for your time. I look forward to hearing from you.
Don’t forget to amend this letter as suitable before sending it to employers in order to be unique as possible.
