I am writing out of interest for your new security role and believe I am perfect for the job.
I have 10-years-experience working in security for a range of companies and organizations both solo and part of (sometimes heading up) teams. This experience has been across retail, office and factory environments with me facing and overcoming a number of security challenges.
As part of my role, I have introduced new security systems to office blocks and implemented new key card entry systems that reduced unsolicited entry during work hours by 80% making the environment much more secure.
As well as security issues I ran a small team so have experience in staffing, rotas and employee grievances to add to the role as well. Under my management the company had less staff absences and general, overall staff satisfaction on the job.
I am a fast learner, good with communication and team work and have a strong work ethic. Because of all this I believe I am perfect for your role.
Your company with it's multiple buildings and vast grounds presents a special kind of challenge for security operatives, but this is one that I am excited to take on and lead the team to improve safety and security for your staff.
I would love to discuss joining your team in more detail and explain my experiences further. I feel that with a short conversation you will see that I am right for this position.
Thanks for taking the time to read this letter, and my CV. I hope to hear from you soon.
Kind regards, Mark Purvis
