Hi Tim,

I saw your ad for a runner in the Birmingham area. I'd be very interested in this job and I think my answers will convince you that I'm the one for you!

1. What do you hope to get out of the day?

Experience, experience, experience. Because I'm still new to all this I really do think that I can't get enough. I want to see as much production from as many different angles as possible. I want to meet new people and learn at least one great tip to make me better at my job.

2. What will you be able to offer?

Enthusiasm, hard work, a permanent smile, great tea or coffee (I can remember up to twenty or thirty orders) and a knockout sense of humour - quack quack! ... Sorry, I won't say that again. ;-)

3. What are the three most important duties of a runner?

To do the job.
To do it quickly.
To do it with a smile. (Runners should be seen but not heard.)

I live in the Birmingham area and I although I don't have a car I can borrow my boyfriend's for the job. I have a full licence and know the area quite well so if I'm sent on errands I won't get lost.

Look forward to hearing from you!
