Cover Letter: Farm Secretary
Application for a Farm Secretary
I would like to apply for the position of Farm Secretary that I have seen advertised in (where, when) and have enclosed my CV for you to look at.
I have had many years experience in an administrative role and as a child I grew up on a Farm so have a good understanding of Farming life and the variations of livestock and crops and feel that I could use this knowledge well in my role. (Remember only if this is true, use whatever past experiences you can to show how you would fit in).
In my previous roles I have been involved in ordering supplies and keeping track so that we never run out of anything, dealing with invoices that come into the business and having a good understanding of the legal side of a business including health and safety. I have excellent computer skills and feel that I pick up new programs quickly and efficiently.
I am a confident communicator and enjoy working as part of a wider team. I am a very hands on person and likes to get involved in any aspect that I can possibly make a difference in.
If you would be interested in my skills and experience and have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
I look forward to hearing from you.
