Dear Sir,

I am writing to enquire about the part-time position as a waiter advertised in  'The Evening Echo' on 24th June.

I am looking for work in the months of July and August because my university vacation is then. I have quite a lot of experience in the hotel business, as I was working in a guesthouse last year. The job involved dealing with geusts, and I very much enjoyed it. I can supply references of my previous employer if you require them.

Could you please let me know what this position involves? At the guesthouse, I worked as a porter and also I did some work as a waiter in the restaurant, so I would be interested in either of these jobs.

Could you give me an idea of the working hours? I am available at the weekends as well as during the week, and I can work any hours. However, I would prefer daytime to shifts, if possible. Could you also tell me about accommodation for employees and how much you pay.

I would appreciate hearing from you.

Yours faithfully
