Application for the role of Production Operative
I would like to apply for the role of Production Operative which you have advertised in (where and when).
I have had some previous experience of working in a similar environment and using machines and equipment as part of my role. I have assembled goods on a production line and been responsible for operating the equipment.
I have a responsible attitude and have always reported and reacted quickly to faults on the production line. I have worked with a number of different people within this environment and feel that I work well as part of a team.
I am a very hands on person; I like to see products completed. I have my forklift truck licence (from when if true) and feel that I am a very capable person around any type of equipment.
I have in the past liaised with the delivery teams to ensure that products and goods are ready to be shipped and I have always ensured that my work area is left clean and tidy in line with the procedures of the centre.
I have enclosed my CV so that you can see my detailed experiences. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.
Thank you for taking the time to read my CV and letter and I look forward to hearing from you.
Good luck and let us know if you require this example in different formats including pdf or doc.
