Dear Sir/Madam I’m applying for the advertised position for a waiting staff. I feel well suited for the job having acquired more than a year of experience as a waiter within the hospitality and restaurant sector.
I have worked as a waiter at North Cafe and Restaurant in Kathmandu, Nepal where I direct staff of Waiters and Waitresses within a fast moving and high pressure environment, delivering high level hospitality and customer services, ensuring smooth operations and customer satisfaction at all times. This position has given me a sense of achievement and I gained rapid promotion three months after being recruited as Waiter. My new position as Head Waiter required that I adopt a supervisory role and it was necessary to juggle many different tasks at once.
I was responsible for managing the restaurant and bar, ensuring orders were fulfilled, keeping track of inventories and arranging delivery of supplies. All this involve giving instructions to members of staff and monitoring them; but I also used to make the time to listen and this improved communication within my team. By communicating effectively, I helped raise team morale and this helped me and the other waitresses/waiters. Through good organisation and communication, I ensured efficient functioning of the restaurant and bar, ensuring simultaneous requests and orders by customers were met within reasonable time.
I am reliable, with excellent communication and interpersonal skills. My one year experience as Head Waiter at the North Cafe and Restaurant has given me the opportunity to hone excellent organizational and supervisory skills, ability to delegate tasks proactively and manage competing deadlines. I believe my skills and experience make me a suitable candidate for the related position. Meanwhile, I look forward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience. Yours Sincerely, Sundar Bhandari
