Dear Mrs Smith
Application for the post of General Manager
I am very interested in the above-advertised position and enclose my CV for your consideration. I am pleased to say that I know one of your previous Board members, Joe Brown and that he recommended that I apply for the post.
You will see from my CV that I have over ten years of management experience in the hospitality sector and have experience running mid-sized hotels and tourist attractions. I feel confident that my excellent people and leadership skills, flexible attitude and commercial awareness would make me ideally suited to this post. In addition to my general management experience, I can also deliver training courses and prepare financial budgets.
I have superb communications and customer service skills and would describe myself as unflappable, even in the most difficult situations. I have excellent IT skills and developed an expertise in using the internet to market the hotels in which I worked. I am used to presenting data and figures to owners and senior managers and have no issue with working unsocial hours.
I believe that I would be a valuable addition to your management team and give a professional face to the company. If you would like to take my application forward, I would be delighted to attend for interview to provide further information on my experience and abilities.
Thank you for your time.
