How to write a planner cover letter

The best format for writing a cover letter for a planner is:

  • Address the employer with a formal salutation. For example, “Dear/Hello (name of the recipient).” If you do not know the name of the recipient, you can refer to them as the hiring manager.
  • The next step is to state the position you are applying for and how you found the opening. 
  • Make a brief statement about why you’re interested in the position.
  • State your skills and work experience. Ensure your skills and experiences are similar to the job position. When highlighting skills, provide the accomplishment you have achieved. 
  • It would be best to connect your most relevant qualifications with the job position. It helps employers see why you’re a great fit for the role.
  • Conclude your letter with a forward-looking statement. For example, “I look forward to discussing the position with you further.”

“Dear Mr. Bank,

I am submitting my resume for the position of Planner. With a bachelor’s degree in supply chain management, three years of experience as an Assistant Planner, voluntary supply chain certification and exceptional analytical skills, I believe that I would be a valuable addition to the Longhorn Manufacturing team.

My professional experience includes analyzing inventories, making accurate inventory projections, monitoring supply and demand, communicating with third-party vendors to coordinate shipments and implementing a variety of inventory management tools. Over the course of my career so far, I have learned that open channels of communication and a team-oriented mindset are just as important for the success of the supply chain as excellent analytical and managerial skills.

Here are some highlights of my experience and qualifications:

Earned a bachelor’s degree in supply chain management from the University of Texas

Received voluntary certification from the APICS

Worked as an Assistant Planner for Omega Industries

Analyzed an inventory of more than 100,000 units of merchandise

Minimized waste and maximized both profit and productivity

Introduced cutting-edge inventory management tools which were later adopted company-wide

Assisted with customer service duties to ensure the satisfaction of all customers

I hope to have the opportunity to bring my team spirit, analytical mindset, and planning experience to Longhorn Manufacturing.

I appreciate your time and consideration, and I look forward to discussing this position with you further.
