Subject: Application for a position of Service Delivery Manager
This letter is to introduce myself as a potential candidate for the vacant position of a Service Delivery Manager at Jolt Inc. as posted on the Company's website. Presently, I am performing these similar responsibilities at Benny Communications, a wholesale dealer of mobile phones and electronic products, since 2010.
I started my career with a popular bakery as a service delivery executive soon after my graduation. Here, I got lots of exposure in dealing with customers in person and pacifying their anger at times when delivery used to be delayed. Though I was not at fault for untimely delivery, I was at the forefront in receiving flaks from customers. Being the receiver of clients' criticism forced me to suggest a few things to my manager in improving delivery service. Luckily, my suggestions were implemented and there were no more problems in service.
As my confidence and experience augmented, I joined Benny Communications. However, since my employer is planning to shift the business base to another city, and I cannot relocate due to family problems, the opening in your organization has come as a blessing to me. You can rely on me for taking your service delivery to the satisfaction of your customers. I have strong mentoring, interpersonal and communication skills, and believe in leading from the front.
The enclosed resume will tell you more about my qualification and the awards I have received. My records in delivering products in time has been impeccable. I am also recognized for holding maximum safety records. I am interested in having an interaction with you relating to my experience and skills. Is it acceptable to you if I call you next Monday for an appointment? I am also available at 740-834-9163 anytime you wish. Thank you for your consideration.
This service delivery manager cover letter is introducing the applicant clearly and also offering the reason for changing the job. This clears the doubt from the employer's mind on why do this person wants to shift to another job.
