Application for the role of Manufacturing Engineer
I would like to apply for the role of Manufacturing Engineer which I have seen advertised in (which publication or online site and when).
I graduated from (which university and in when and what subject) and since then I have been working as a manufacturing engineer for (who).
I have thoroughly enjoyed my time (with what company) but now I feel that I am ready for a new challenge and was very interested to read your job description and feel that this could be the challenge that I need.
(This section needs to match up to the job description or advert itself so that you can describe what you have been doing that would demonstrate and match up to what their requirements are).
I am a very organised person who pays great attention to detail. I like working in a technical manner and enjoy learning new skills.
Please find enclosed my up to date CV for your consideration. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me and I will be happy to answer any questions that you may have.
