Dear …………,

I would like to propose my candidacy for your position of CEO which I saw advertised yesterday on the website today.

As an ambitious CEO who never rest on his laurels, you can rely on me to ensure the long-term sustainability of your business.

Your job advert specifically states that candidates should have a proven track record in growing teams and businesses. I can do this by articulating and driving forward a company’s vision through seeking out and capitalising on new opportunities for growth. I am a strategic operator, with outstanding commercial acumen and superb financial planning skills. In short, exactly the sort of person that you are looking for. I have a passion for continuous improvement, robust governance, and strong growth. This coupled with my awareness of social, economic, and political influences that could impact on an organisation, makes me a formidable operator.

With me you will get a proven leader who has a collaborative approach to engaging, inspiring and influencing across teams. I’m also familiarity with good business management practices in relation to planning, compliance, risk management, quality assurance and governance. You can rely on me to ensure that your company has the appropriate auditing and financial control processes in place to protect assets, maintain effective control of operations and provide accurate and complete public disclosure of results.

In my current role I work for a fast moving and highly innovative company. At work I ensure the efficient, effective, and safe management of the organisation and ensure that it is developed in line with key strategic aims and objectives. I work relationally and bring emotional intelligence and sensitivity to what I do. With my compatriots I have a reputation for not making hasty decisions but carefully thought-out ones. My experiences to date have left me with the ability to mentor senior staff, trouble-shoot organisational problems and act as a broker between the different groups. I now know how to use modern working methods and systems to ensure that a company is managed effectively and efficiently.

On a personal level I am an effective networker who has the ability to identify and develop networks to help further the company’s objectives. I consider myself an empathetic leader who can inspire and nurture a culture of continuous learning, inclusion, and support across teams. I am superb at building trusting relations with key partners and stakeholders.

I invite you to review my attached resume which will show you that I am a capable and professional individual who is able to perform to the highest standards in those areas you seek in a candidate. To this end I very much hope that you will look favourably upon my application, and I eagerly await to hear back from you.

Yours sincerely,
