Evans, Shane CV use
30 August 2015.
To whom it may concern.
I have over 26 years of experience in the Restaurant trade, having worked extensively both locally and
internationally, running many up-market establishments and large units in Africa
Ideally employment within the group would allow me to showcase my considerable knowledge and skills that I have
garnered over the years, to great effect. In my capacity I was responsible for every aspect of running the enterprise
which included: staffing, ordering and payroll. Additional experience was gained by routinely conducting hygiene
<QPRO> and product audits, to ensure that all regulations both local and municipal were adhered to. My position
also afforded me the opportunity to conduct disciplinary hearings and enquiries. Through all my years’ experience I
was able to utilise what I had learnt to better understand the worker and what he /she is capable of.
My experience is transferable, specifically in the areas of training and management, however I look forward to
having the opportunity to gain more experience within the group. Given my knowledge and disposition I would be a
valuable addition to the Company.
For your convenience, I have attached my resume’ for review and due to the limitations of the written page, I would
welcome the opportunity to take part in a formal interview at your discretion, to better present my qualifications
and answer any questions.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
Sincerely.
