Dear Mr Cunningham,

Re: Optical Assistant (REF: QQ24864)

Thank you for seeing me the other day about the Optical Assistant position. I confirm that I am still very interested in this opportunity and wish to be considered for this role.

I have just finished my BTEC National Diploma in Optical Dispensing (Level 4), where I studied the principles of optics, lens dispensing and customer service. My education has kindled my passion for pursuing a career in Optometry and making a positive difference in people’s lives.

I enjoy working with people of all ages, having demonstrated this in my role as a voluntary Community Support Assistant where I provided advice and support to children, young adults and the elderly. I am a committed, self-driven and organised individual with excellent communication skills. I consider myself to be a perfectionist, and always strive to achieve excellence in everything that I do.

I have had the pleasure of visiting Eye Solutions and seeing first-hand the excellent products and services that you provide. I firmly believe that my contribution will be invaluable to the success your organisation and the satisfaction of your customers.

I would very much appreciate the opportunity to meet with you personally to discuss the immense contribution that I could make to your organisation. I am available for an interview at short notice throughout the week. Thank you for the consideration, and I hope to hear from you in the not too distant future.

Yours sincerely,

~ Signature goes here ~

Lisa Metcalfe.
