I would be delighted to bring these along if I were given the opportunity of an interview. I am a very hands-on person and the moment I saw your advertised vacancy I felt I had to apply. You detail 8 areas of responsibility for this post and I feel I meet these requirements 1)Supervision my experience with managing and developing staff 2)Health & Safety H&S adherence throughout my management career 3)Plymouth Gamestation was a 'centre of excellence' and had to be maintained as such 4)Customer focus/value for money - legendary customer-focus was always my driving store ethos 5)Record keeping/cctv procedures my attention to detail earned me consistently high audit results 6)Compliance a strong-point of my character and skills 7)Advice and support Communication is key and I firmly believe this to be the answer in any walk of life 8)Out of hours anti-social hours never a problem I am an empathetic individual and I feel as though this might be an opportunity to join an organisation that is focused on helping the community.
