Dear Mrs Piper,

Re: Kitchen Manager (Job ID: WY348)

I was recently speaking to Mr Kevin Chilli from your company who highly recommended me to apply for the Kitchen Manager position as I would be a great fit for this role.

For the past two years, I have been working as the Head Chef at Nino’s Restaurant. My primary responsibilities include managing the kitchen staff, ensuring food is prepared and served to the highest standard, training new employees, organising menus and introducing new dishes.

I have a great passion for food, and that drives me to cook the best food and provide the highest customer service to customers. My leadership skills allow me to build strong relationships with staff and motivate and encourage them to fulfil their duties. Working under pressure in a busy working environment, such as a restaurant, is not only something that I can do but I actually thrive in those situations. My personal drive, combined with my passion for food, make me the perfect role model for other kitchen staff to follow.

Cha Cha Cuisine is a well-known restaurant with excellent customer reviews. I have had the pleasure to dine at your restaurant a couple of times, and I am truly impressed by the quality of food and the customer service that I received. It would be a privilege to work at your restaurant and make it an even better place for your customers to dine in.

I am convinced that my previous work experience in catering makes me the ideal candidate for this role. I hope that you will agree and that you will invite me for an interview to discuss this opportunity further. Thank you for your time and consideration, and I’m looking forward to hearing back from you shortly.

Yours sincerely,

~ Signature goes here ~

Tim Coleman.
