Letter of Motivation

The motivation for hiring me is contained in the expertise and the experience I offer which is detailed in my CV.

My style of work is to be proactive rather than reactive. I do not require motivation or supervision. Some of my Certificates were lost in a fire some years ago e.g. Pastel – they no longer issue PCI Certificates or duplicates as the Pastel Certified Installer (PCI) course is no longer offered. I am an avid scuba diver with over 100 dives. I am also a keen follower of Formula 1 racing and MotoGP.

Other than that I am an older woman with no intention of retiring, and posess more energy than most people I know.

I look forward to your favourable response in due course. Yours sincerely

Cheryll Lewarne
