Dear Ms Forrester
Re: Mechanical Engineer Position
I am writing to apply for the position of Mechanical Engineer as recently advertised on SEEK.com.au.
I am a highly motivated Mechanical Engineer with a Bachelor of Engineering (Mechanical Major) and three years of practical on-site mining experience. I am very interested in joining the engineering team at Brighton Mining given your reputation for world-leading innovation in open cut and underground mining.
In my current position as a mechanical engineer at Newcrest Mining I have developed key project management skills and the ability to improve communication with the broader project team. As I am required to ensure risk assessments are correctly implemented and current legislative and environmental guidelines are followed, successful communication is critical to my role.
I am very confident in planning and designing projects using AutoCAD and EXTB, and contributing to the budgeting process. I enjoy the hands-on work that this type of mining role entails, including checking the technical aspects of drawings and equipment designs and the maintenance of existing infrastructure.
I have a thorough knowledge of the processes of open cut and underground mining and am experienced in directing and managing the on-site team, including contractors. I possess excellent interpersonal and communication skills and my multitasking abilities are advanced.
Given my on-site experience I am accustomed to operating in a FIFO environment and working hard to keep projects running on time and within budget. I am keen to employ my skills and enthusiasm as an integral part of your team and I look forward to being able to discuss this position with you further.
