The Human Resource Manager,
Plot 37 Ntinda II Rd,
Dear hiring manager,
Ref: APPLICATION FOR THE POST OF OPERATIONS SPECIALIST.
My name is Mujjuzi Nizzarh, a Ugandan citizen, majored in Transport and logistics Management from Makerere University Business School, With over four years of professional experience, I apply for the post of Operations Specialist in your organization with great enthusiasm.
Whilst completing my University studies, I worked in a chain of business lines ranging from Customer Service, Administration Assistantance as well as logistics operations. My responsibilities in thse roles included providing face-to-face customer service, assisting with stock movements, visual merchandising, providing office support and lastly perform day to day operations in logistics based fraternities. This background has given me key employability skills while also allowing me to experience working in a professional and fast-paced work environment.
With regard to my ability to meet the specific requirements of this job, some examples include;
Analyse data to come up with best experience for stakeholders; here am talking about the drivers, the clients or users and other different parties partizan. This is something I have been involved in, I talk to a number of drivers, listen to feedback from many customers and with this all I have the right mindset to tackle any challenges in this system to not only see Taxify grow further but to also live on after we gone as well.
Onboard new Drivers; I believe that for any team success to be implemented, cooperation and support for one another has to be effective. With this drivers will be motivated and they will do what they have to do promptly ie. duties that deal with training sessions, follow up on driver and clients queries or complaints, time management, amongst other duties will be well taken care of if am given the mandate to coordinate it.
Develop and execute strategies to keep the churn rate at minimum; This is very important in service businesses and its defined as the percentage of subscribers to a service who discontinue their subscriptions to the service within a given time period. We shouldn't just be looking at reducing this rate but rather also considering maximization of profits. And here the core strategy comes in by reducing on the driver and customer complaints, when both parties are happy then it's a win-win situation. Given the opportunity to take this on, I have a few ideas to put across to curb this.
Furthermore I have attached my resume and look forward to getting an interview with you to discuss more in regards to this job.
I am a down to earth, disciplined and ethical type of person pursuing bachelors in Transport and Logistics Management with up to to 4 years working experience in different working environments.
