Dear Sir / Madam,
I noted with interest that you are currently looking for someone to act as a guide to new arrivals to our local area, and I would like to put myself forward for the position.
As a local resident of some 25 years, I am very familiar with the location, and have actually spent some time in researching the history of the town. As you may know, the house I live in is one of the oldest buildings in the area and dates back over 100 years, so I feel I am perhaps in a unique position to give visitors an interesting and informative perspective of where we live.
I have a background in lecturing, so I feel that I would be able to address groups of people clearly and confidently, and my experience with students from overseas would certainly help, given the multinational nature of visitors that we have here.
I look forward to hearing from you.
