Application for the role of Yard person
I would like to apply for the role of Yard Person which you have got advertised in (where) and (when).
I have had experience in working outdoors for a number of years and more recently have been working at a school as their caretaker providing maintenance and repair support both inside and outside of the school grounds. This included supervising the area and making sure that all the jobs that are required to be done are done in order of priority and following strict health and safety guidelines.
I have always been a very hands on person and like to see the results when I have been able to fix something or repair it into a good standard that can be used again. I have a good mind when it comes to thinking logically about how to repair items or equipment and I am always happy to give anything a go.
I have had a supervisory capacity in my roles and am used to monitoring someone else’s work load and reviewing their roles. I feel that I have got good supervisory and communication skills and have a very helpful but thorough nature.
I have enclosed my CV which details my experiences, should you be interested in my skills, please do not hesitate to contact me and I will be happy to answer any questions that you may have regarding my skills and experiences.
Thank you for taking the time to read my letter and CV and I look forward to hearing from you.
