Dear Mr/ Mrs,

I would like to apply for the advertised position of Human Resource Assistant as advertised on Pin-Up Jobs.

I have come to love working with people and would be thrilled to have the opportunity to work in the hospitality industry and assist with your human resource department. 

I am planning to make a career shift into Human Management.  I am currently studying toward a Diploma in Human Resource Management,  planning on completing my second academic year by the end of  2017.  

Good interpersonal skills allow me to effectively communicate with a wide variety of people, work well in a team and solve problems quickly. My English and Afrikaans is on a professional proficiency level, and I can speak German on a bilingual level. 

My best value proposition is that I am a hard worker who brings enthusiasm and professionalism to any team I am part of. I believe I am a pleasant person who is mature, dynamic and can cope well when the going gets tough.

I have four and a half years experience in the property industry with another year in a customer orientated position, working with people from all walks of life.  I believe this can only benefit your team. The last year at No 1 Estates I have also provided training, development and guidance to the new agents who joined our team. I am proficient in MS Office applications and have my own transport.

Clients and co-workers have described me as friendly and trustworthy.

Your time and consideration will be much appreciated!


Kind Regards,

Donata van Rooyen
