Mrs Jane Smith
Application for the role of Finance Manager
I am writing to apply for the position as finance manager at your company. My qualifications and work experience give me the perfect background for the role.
My love of numbers led me to do a degree in finance which I then used to get me work as an accountant for a small local company. Although this taught me a lot about working in a business and I enjoyed the responsibility that it brought, I wanted the challenge of working for a larger company. I therefore left this job after two years and joined the finance team in a large corporation. This gave me more technical and numeracy skills and experience with working with a lot more people and in a very different environment. I enjoyed the job but am again looking for a bigger challenge and feel that this role will do this for me. I feel that my communication and time management skills will help me as well as my ability for problem solving and attention to detail. Having recently gained a qualification in management, I feel ready to lead a team and have had some experience already of doing this in my current role when the manager was away. I therefore hope that you will consider me for this job.
