Dear Ms Green
Re: Travel Services Modern Apprenticeship (Ref. TSMA YP1)
I am writing to apply for the above post, which I saw advertised in the Aberdeen Gazette on 12 July. I am also attaching my CV to this letter for your consideration.
As you can see from my CV I am about to leave school and have recently completed six National 5 qualifications. I expect to achieve mainly A or B grades in all of my subjects, based on prelim results. I have also successfully completed the SQA Skills for Work course in Travel and Tourism.
This was a wonderful opportunity to find out more about the industry, which I have been interested in for some time. I was also able to practise my customer care and telephone skills during a two-week placement in a local travel service, which specialises in executive travel.
I thoroughly enjoyed working with the customers and providing them with information. I am now keen to find an entry level post in the industry and gain recognised qualifications.
I know that your service has an excellent reputation for the quality of its training. I am particularly interested in the advertised apprenticeship because it provides the opportunity to work towards SVQ 3 Travel Services.
I hope that my CV shows that I have the skills and potential to become an excellent employee. Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you.
