Further to your advertisement on CV Library for a delivery driver I would like you to consider my application.
Although I don’t have any experience the advertisement does state that it isn’t essential. I do have a clean driving licence, and passed my test more than five years ago. I understand that the work will involve driving a van with parcels from a local catalogue clothes company to their customers.
I do know the area reasonably well as I have lived in Colwyn Bay for the last ten years and prior to that I lived in Bangor.
I understand that the vehicle will be loaded ready for the driver in the mornings and the van is returned to the depot. It is really helpful that the route is planned in advance and that the van is loaded so that items for the last drop are the furthest from the door.
I have enclosed my CV which shows my work history, although I haven’t worked for the past few years as I wanted to stay at home with the children. They are now of an age where I am able to make arrangements for them after school and in the holidays.
I am available to attend an interview at any time convenient for you and I hope to hear from you soon.
Yours sincerely/Yours faithfully,
[contact phone number]
