Dear Mr Border,

I write to apply for the Retail Sales Assistant position in WC Tees Melbourne city store, advertised in the The Australian on Saturday, 22 January.

My current job as a marketing assistant at Qtshirts means I could quickly adapt to WC Tees and make an immediate impact in this position because I know what is currently in demand and what customisations fans would need for the upcoming cricket world cup.

I hold a Certificate III in Retail Operations and have excellent sales and customer service skills.

I am a sports enthusiast and would love to work for a related company that offers a diverse range of opportunities for career progression.

Please refer to my attached resume that further outlines my skills and experience. I am looking forward to discussing the position and how I can contribute to your business at interview.

Yours sincerely
Andy Murray
