To Whom It May Concern
I am writing to apply for a position within your organization.
After having grown up on a farm, I have a developed a comprehensive understanding of the dangers associated with machinery, along with the processes and procedures required to follow to ensure the safety of people and surroundings. I enjoy the learning curve which presents itself when new machinery or a new challenge is made available.
I then went on to working on a farm for approx. 10 years which was mainly dry land, but did have a couple hundred acres of irrigated. In this role I managed a dubosia plantation, which included ground prep, planting, harvesting, drying and all other aspects needed to look after it. I assisted with the maintenance and servicing of machinery and property. On the cropping side I undertook preparation of ground work, crop maintenance and harvested various types. During harvest season I assisted in harvesting, storage and transportation of product.
The last few years I found myself working as a trade’s assistant in the mining industry, both in maintenance and construction. Both of these roles have increased my ability to identify and rectify risk situations. In my last position, I was the Safety Rep for my work crew over the last two years.
I am a conscientious employee who endeavors to complete all tasks handed down to me in a safe and diligent manner. I have no doubt that I am capable of undertaking any position offered and if given the opportunity I believe I could become an integral part of your team.
I believe both of these types of employment I have undertaken will mean that I am able to do the job you require. I have attached my resume for your perusal. Please do not hesitate to contact my referees on my attached resume or should you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
