Application for a Sales Consultant
I have recently seen your position of Sales Consultant advertised and I would like to apply for this role, please find enclosed my CV.
I have worked in a shop before selling ladies footwear and thoroughly enjoyed my time doing this role. Unfortunately my role was only on a temporary basis over Christmas and I would like to secure a more permanent role now.
I worked at a particularly busy period of the year and experienced a Sale period, Christmas shopping period and enjoyed the fast pace of the role. I succeeded in making my targets during the time that I was there and enjoyed offering and selling the promotions that we had on offer at the time.
I am a confident communicator who enjoys getting to know customers and what their likes and dislikes are so that I can recommend various products for them. I have a keen interest in fashion and feel that I would do well in this role that you have advertised.
I am available for any shift patterns that you may require and can be flexible on my days etc as needed. I have enclosed my CV which details my experiences and can attend an interview at short notice.
May I take this opportunity to thank you for taking the time to read my letter and CV and I look forward to hearing from you.
Good luck with writing your application letter and let us know if you require this letter in PDF and Doc.
