I am writing to express my interest in your Shift Supervisor position that I saw advertised today on the Profyl.ORG website.

I can ensure optimal productivity and quality at the lowest cost through the better management of staff, equipment and resources.

As my CV and references will indicate, I have previous experience of supervising shift operations and of delegating duties, allocating tasks and resolving daily operational issues. You can rely on me to ensure strict adherence to processes, systems and schedules that drive service excellence and quality. I will always ensure all staff are well briefed on their responsibilities and are given constant supervision and motivation on all aspects of their work. Aside from my leadership qualities, I am someone who enjoys and wants to be an active member of a team. In addition to this I work calmly and effectively under pressure and have the drive, determination and desire needed to succeed.

What is guaranteed to set me apart from everyone else is my ability to stimulate change, challenge assumption and alter existing ways of working, all with the aim of moving a business forward. I also want to mention that I am accustomed to dealing with fast paced situations in a calm methodical manner whilst all the time maintaining a focus on accuracy and attention to detail.

I would like the opportunity to discuss my skills and abilities in more detail with you and am available for an interview at your earliest convenience.

Andries Pieterse
