To Whom It May Concern,
Although originally from New Zealand, I have been living in Australia for over five years. I resided in Rockhampton for the first two years, and have been on the Gold Coast for the past three. I have lived in Australia previously for seven years, stationed in Perth. I then travelled extensively throughout the top of Western Australia, working with shearing gangs as their cook - often in very harsh environments. I have also lived in Geraldton, Darwin, and Cairns, before finally arriving in Brisbane.
I have older children, who originally lived with me in Rockhampton and also here on the Gold Coast, but have since returned to New Zealand for tertiary study. I have long wanted to return to the top of Queensland or Northern Territory, as this better suits my lifestyle. I have a very reliable 4WD, and am in a position to leave the Gold Coast at short notice; with nothing to hold me back. However, it is imperative that I have employment organised at my destination.
I am very physically fit and able; I would easily pass any workplace medical, and have never had a workplace injury. I am more than happy to undertake a drug or alcohol test if required. I have a very strong mental attitude and work ethic, consider myself a good team player, trainer, and team-leader. I communicate in plain language well, and thrive on problem solving. I always use my initiative, but can also follow instructions well and am very willing to assist my superior should it be required.
I can provide certificates and documentation required for the position, and have recently had them renewed from my previous positions. If there is anything else to be renewed or acquired, this can be done with no problems.
