Dear Ms Graham,
As an Accounts Clerk with a broad based financial background, I would like to present myself as a candidate for your current vacancy. My extensive knowledge of basic accounting principles makes me an ideal candidate for your position.
I know exactly what it takes to be a good Accounts Clerk, this is why I have been so successful in my career to date.
As of now, I have three years experience of providing accounting and clerical support to Accounts personnel. With my present employer I am required to monitor customer accounts for non-payment, analyse discrepancies and carry out balance sheet reconciliations. I am also responsible for the coding, posting and receipt of payments and unpaid invoices.
On a personal level I am a cooperative individual who is always willing to assist others and prepared to help out in any fields outside of my remit. My strong work ethic leads to me getting tasks done swiftly and efficiently. Furthermore, I can work independently and require minimal supervision when carrying out my duties. In addition to this I am someone who learns and retains new information faster than most. I am aware of the high calibre of your existing staff members and of the professional reputation of your company, and for these reasons am keen to be associated with your organisation.
I would really like to explain my competencies to you in person, and would be grateful if you would call me in for an interview.
