Dear Ms Graham,
With reference to your recently advertised vacancy for a Barrister, please find attached my CV for your kind consideration.
I come to you as a fully qualified, articulate and commercially savvy barrister who has the ability to interpret and apply legislation and precedent. I possess excellent legal research skills and have the unique ability to self-teach myself in new areas of law.
Through my employment with …………, I have gained significant experience of working in a complex organisation on one or more of the specific areas of regulatory, administrative and competition law. At work, I manage own caseload and provide bespoke legal advice in all complex and high profile cases as directed. I strive to establish and develop good practices among the legal team, and have been commended for ensuring performance is managed so that all aspects of legal services are timely, appropriate and good value for money.
On a personal level I have excellent oral, written, organisational and word processing skills, cope well under pressure, and am prepared to work both as part of a team or on my own. I am open minded in approaching new challenges and can view things from a wider perspective. I must also mention my ability to transition from working in one field of law, to another, as required and at short notice.
Right now, I am looking for suitable position with an organisation where I will have the opportunity to grow professionally, personally, and financially.
Please find attached my current CV, which further details my achievements and qualifications. I look forward in much anticipation to hearing from you.
