I am interested in the post as I believe that I have the right combination of relevant industry
experience, retailing and sales knowledge to not only make an ideal candidate, but also a real asset
to your company.
I have worked within most of the high street retailers, where I have gained a reputation for making
the right choices on key decisions about product selection, visual merchandising, promotions, and
stock control. My prior work experience has given me a strong sense of client service, and a
comprehensive understanding of the UK retail marketplace. Within my Current role, it involves me
travelling to H.O in Barcelona to work closely with the Buying and Merchandising teams to ensure
the best product is delivered to the flagship store on Oxford Street.
I am constantly maintaining an awareness of current fashion trends, and monitoring what local
competitors are doing. I feel my strongest abilities are:
• Managing and motivating those who work with me to increase sales and ensure efficiency
• Ensuring that the highest standards of quality are delivered always
• Commercial awareness, being able to identify opportunities for improvement
• Improving KPI’s
• Liaising with Directors and cross function management
I consider myself to be a dedicated and dependable individual who possess excellent verbal
communication and customer skills.
I feel that your company is the type of organisation in which I would excel, and I am convinced that
my background and experience would make me a perfect fit your vacancy. In closing I would like to
thank you for your time and consideration, and hope to have the opportunity to discuss the opening
with you in person.
