My current CV

Covering letter

DearSir/Madame,

Position: Assistant Quantity Surveyor

My name is Giuseppe Traina, I am 22 years of age and currently in employment with Beechdale Homes. Within my role I deal with the financial side of the projects which consist of: placing orders, programming, variations, sub-contract payments, final accounts, and O&M manuals. I also undergo the role of Site manager where I help in the controlling of labour and works carried out. I also deal with Health & Safety on site making sure Tool-box talks are carried out once week, creating method statements for works in designated areas that need them, and H&S site inspections

I have assisted on the following construction projects:

Whitelands College - Putney -2005
Morgan Stanley Canary Wharf - 2006
Hardman Square Manchester - 2005
Royal Bank of Scotland - Aldgate -  2007
Housing Development of 5 dwellings Fen Drayton, Cambridge 2008
Housing Development of 14 flats Stockwell Street, Cambridge 2008
Housing Development of 5 dwellings Somersham, Cambridge 2008
Housing Development of 10 Social House dwellings Eversden, Cambridge - 2008

I have a second language which is Italian, I find this extremely useful on the construction site, when it comes to speaking to the majority of labourers and other trades which speak a native foreign language.

I took part in the RAF at my school for three successful years where I learned how to communicate and socialise more with people and it also developed my team building skills. I also took part in a charity event with the RAF cadets, which consisted of walking 49 miles in 1 day.

I enclose a copy of my CV, and look forward to hearing from you shortly.

Yours faithfully,

G. Traina
