Introduction

I’m looking to secure a trainee operator position. I have spent the last 16 years as a qualified chef, and during that time I have been transitioning myself out of a commercial kitchen towards a more mechanical future, working in organisation, dispatch, and mechanical equipment, but have not yet found my niche`. During my cheffing career I obtained my HR truck Driving Licence on a Road Ranger and have realised that driving trucks is where I want to be for my future career. I am ready for a change, and a new challenge, with more women obtaining positions, in what was thought to be a man’s industry, I feel I would be a perfect candidate. Being in a commercial kitchen and then in a bulk production kitchen, safety has been a major focus, having all procedures adhered to and putting extra systems in place to keep myself and colleagues safe and to make sure they get home the way they left at the end of each shift. Being from the hospitality industry I am no stranger to 12.5hr rotating shifts, over time and working nights and weekends. I like to learn new skills, and as I grew up on a farm, I have always been around machinery and equipment. I have always wanted to follow in my father’s footsteps and become a truck driver, working in the mines would definitely be the cream of the crop. I am an extremely hard worker, able to take direction and learn new skills quickly and efficiently. I have a great personality and can easily interact with people of any age. Being motivated and with a strong work ethic I hope you will consider me for this position, as I love learning new things, and this is the career I have wanted to be in for the past several years, I believe now is the right time to apply for this position. With my passion for the industry I am confident that I can be successful in this role and I look forward to the opportunity to discuss further.
