Dear Sir,

I am interested in a position in the marine industry and would like to be considered if there are any opportunities. I have over 30 years experience in the marine and oil industry. The marine industry has always held a special attraction for me and the job satisfaction that is related to this industry.

I have a valid Chief Engineers Certificate of Competency foreign going Class 1. The Certificate is valid until 2015. I also have the required certificates.
First aid at sea (STCW A-V1/4-2)
PSSR (STCW A-V1/1-1 and 1-4 )
Advanced fire fighting (STCW A-V1/3).

I am a very committed hand’s on individual focusing on performance and work ethic. I am very assertive and have a perfectionist attitude who is always seeking ways to improve situations in the working environment and equipment performance. I spent some time in Japan during the building of two new refrigerated cargo ships which was a very rewarding experience.

The sea going experience I gained has been on a variety of ships such as general cargo, refrigeration, bulk carriers, tankers and container ships. These have been a combination of manned and unmanned engine rooms. The experience I gained in the petroleum refining industry has added a huge amount of valuable experience in my career. I have held the position of Technical Manager from 2002 to Present.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your time and I will contact you in the near future to follow up on my application or to see if any other opportunities exist.
