Dear Ms Moore,
I am writing to apply for your position of shop assistant which is advertised in the Unusualjobs website.
I am currently working as a sales assistant at Inditex in Barcelona, a position I have held for three years. I am searching for new employment in London as I would like to improve my spoken English.
During my period of employment at Inditex, I gained a broad understanding of the customer service and the importance of dealing with customers in a friendly and efficient way. I also learnt night retail topics, including freshening up a wardrobe for a night. Moreover, I suggested the implementation of a new way for customer feedback which helped the enterprise to identify some areas which needed improvement as the customer satisfaction is the key to success in the service industry. These changes led to an increase in the sales. I believe I can apply customer service and entrepreneurial skills obtained from my previous employ to this position.
As a part of my degree course in Fashion Marketing, I worked as a shop assistant for three months in a shop specialized in rave clothes such as fluorescent dresses with hooped necks, reinforced shoulders, and exposed fronts, where I gained experience in the futuristic fashion industry.
You will find enclosed a copy of my curriculum vitae, which gives further details of my education and my career to date. I would welcome the opportunity to discuss my professional history and qualifications with you in greater detail.
Thank you in advance for your consideration.
