Mrs Jane Smith
Application for the role of Merchandiser
I am writing in order to apply for the position of merchandiser at your company. I have had previous retail experience, working in a shop on Saturday mornings for the last three years while studying for my degree in retail management. I am therefore not only used to communicating with customers and other staff members but understand the retail process well and have studied specific areas of merchandising as part of my degree, for which I got a 2(i) with honours.
Although I have no specific merchandising skills, I am very quick to learn and willing as well. I am aware of what it takes to keep customers happy and feel that this is a key part of the merchandising role as it will make sure that the correct stock is purchased to keep customers happy. I also understand that it will be necessary to communicate with the companies that items are being bought from. I relish the challenge of having to negotiate with them to get the best possible bargains and organise the whole process from choosing and ordering items to arranging their delivery and distribution. I feel that my recent temporary work as an office administrator has also given me relevant skills which I will be able to apply to this role including organisational skills, numerical skills and computer literacy.
